An interesting wine. The nose displayed plenty of soft and ripe red and black fruit up front, followed by a deeper aromatic sensation of tar dried sage. The palate was a mix of the fruit, tar, oaky vanilla, and a slight salty character brought on by more of the dried herb element. Is this a Cab Franc, or a light Syrah that has lost its way? High toned acidity and tannins on the finish added more to the mystery than to the wine. But like I said, interesting.
