Cocoa powder and a hint of espresso weaves its way through the dense, but well defined fruit characteristics. The wine’s balanced glide quietly speaks to its well-established pedigree. The mouth-feel is full on but also nimbly and proportionately balanced. The bright acidity keeps the wine flashing with energy while the tightly muscular heart of this wine confidently hangs on a sturdy, resolved tannin frame. As the 2020 Cabernet Franc flows past, you know that it will be delivering yet another knockout punch.
