Vandal Vineyard
Los Carneros, Napa Valley

Colour: red


100% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes: An opaque ruby purple attracts the eye. Effusive aromas of plum, crushed blackberry, candied violet, backed by cocoa dust and sweet (almost fennel-like) herbs swirl from the glass. These gregarious aromas pick up complexity with restrained underpinnings of nutmeg and vanilla from French oak barrels. The flavors mimic the aromas on the palate. Primary fruit currently showboats, as the fine, ripe fruit tannins rest gently on youthful wood tannins. Evolution is pointing in the right direction, making this a wine that can be consumed now but will give pleasure over the next ten years or more, that is, if you can wait. A vibrant mouth-watering acidity enlivens the salivary glands, leading to a long, juicy, deep chocolate-berry finish that lingers long after this delicious wine first touches your lips.
