Cornerstone Cellars 2012 Black Label Cabernet Franc
Showing true expression of its varietal, this is a 100% pure, rich, classic Cabernet Franc showcasing savory aromas of dried herbs, black tea leaves, fresh tobacco all intertwined with sweet, red berry fruits and nuances of barrel spice. With a lively inner-mouth energy through a beautifully balanced acidity this Cabernet Franc is both vibrant and sexy with a smooth, refined texture, suave tannins and a clean, velvety, persistent finish. Drinking beautifully now, this Cabernet Franc will become even more delicious with some age for the patient wine drinkers among us! ~Tasting notes by Kari Auringer, Cornerstone Cellars Winemaker
