Hall - Cabernet Franc
Inky dark, threw off a bit of sediment when decanted. The nose of lavender, savory spices and a bit of wood only hint at the pleasures you'll experience on the palate. Med acid, med-high tannins, med-long finish. Tannins are fine and well-integrated. Dark, stewed fruits. Wonderful balance (loads of fruit to balance the tannins and alcohol). Wow!
(Far Niente) - Dolce
Guigal - Hermitage
Drinking wonderfully now. Secondary flavors of tobacco and garage have developed. Nicely balanced.
