Tasting Note: An aged Bourgueil that expresses more fruit concentration on the nose than on the palate, and that is still very much alive showing varietal typicity for the region.

Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, pencil shavings, red raspberry, crushed violet petal and forest floor.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with a smooth texture supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin.

The wine has some midpalate complexity and completes with a slightly-tart, red-fruit finish.
