"A fresh and perfumed cabernet franc with rose petals, fresh herbs and currant character. Full-bodied, tight and focused, offering berry and wet-earth character. Firm and silky texture. Intense finish. Polished and refined. Better in 2020 but already beautiful now."

"Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of raspberry, cherry, dusty spices and rose petal, along with a touch of medicinal herbs. Suaver and more perfumed than the 2012 version, showing a slightly glyceral, very smooth texture to its distinctly saline, fresh flavors of red fruits, red licorice and rose petal. Finishes with ripe, firm tannins and excellent unflagging length. A fascinating Cabernet Franc, quite distinctive in its texture and aromatic profile."
