Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Franc 2017

This is a very tasty Cabernet Franc from Lake County in California.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Showing black currants, blueberries, oak, licorice, light vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates, earth, light vegetables and light bell pepper.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

This 4 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

I gave it 3 hours to open up properly, and paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Cabernet Franc grapes were aged in French oak barrels. A very small production of only 6 barrels.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Drinks like an aged Unoaked Chardonnay with a twist. Tangy and nicely balanced.
