Good full ruby. Slightly inky aromas of pungent black raspberry, black plum, minerals and Cuban tobacco. High-pitched yet lush on the palate, with black raspberry, tobacco and mineral flavors. Still, not nearly as dense as the above. Firmly built and persistent. These wines are aged in all new barrels, but have so much material the oak is barely noticeable.

The 1995 second wine is an outstanding offering (300 cases made from 100% Cabernet Franc). It possesses a dense, murky ruby/purple color, and an expressive, cedary, leathery, spicy nose with plenty of black fruits. Some minerality comes through, but this complex, evolved yet structured, full-bodied wine is an amazing second wine. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

Wow. This is drinking fabulously. Dark purple, with cedar on the nose. Dark berry fruit and spice on the palate ends in a nice long finish. Tannins, acid and fruit are in balance. This cabernet franc pairs exceptionally well with food.
