Natalie's Score: 89/100

The 2006 season began with light but steady rain, creating vigorous growing conditions that produced more bunches than desirable. To stay the yield targets, the growers cut almost 40% of the fruit produced on all red varieties. Aged 15 months in American and French oak. Deep garnet color with aromas of black cherry, black currant, violet, cedar, cigar box and mocha. This dry, medium-bodied wine is rich in the mouth, with texture. Very balanced.

Cabernet Franc food pairings: rack of lamb, wild mushroom risotto, game meats, beef stews, grilled steak with sauteed mushrooms.
