Abadal, Franc 2014, Pla de Bages, Spain
Tasting Note: A cabernet franc and tempranillo blend that expresses qualities of the latter grape more than the former and with a mostly straightforward style and some mid-palate hints of complexity.
Medium-tending-towards-deep-intensity purple in color, this red blend has an aromatic nose of red plum, red currant, raspberry compote and violet blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine delivers flavors suggested on the nose with slightly-grippy, medium tannin.
The red blend completes with a medium finish.
Bottle Note: 50% Cabernet Franc, 40% Tempranillo, 10% Sumoll.
