2016 Cabernet Franc, Oakville Station

Big, bold, and effusive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and baking spices exude on our sought-after Cabernet Franc. A touch of sweet vanilla suggests a little time spent on new French oak. Smooth and round on entry, blackberry and red currant flavors evolve into a complex blend of ripe summer fruit and sweet dried herbs, with just a bit of floral. Fleshy and full-bodied the savory complexity on the finish gives way to supple tannins and a lingering finish.
