A polished and precise cab franc, this full-bodied example displays the variety’s trademark herbal side but in an admirably subtle way, letting the ripe, weighty fruit play the starring role, with added support from vanilla, chocolate and tobacco. Elegant tannins offer gently dusty-sticky structure. Try it with lamb chops.
