The 2020 Cabernet Franc is vibrant from the first pour. The spice and vanilla notes derived from the oak aging are well integrated but do not distract from the power that this varietal offers. Enjoy this wine young with rich foods or cellar for an extended period for further development. Drink now through 2033.
