Château Yvonne “La Folie” 2015, Saumur Champigny, Loire, France

Tasting Note: A muted cabernet franc with earthiness running throughout the length of the taste.

Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red plum, forest floor, wet cardboard and dried violet leaf.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc has muted, medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and medium tannin.

There is a tart-red-fruit character in the midpalate with continues through to the medium finish.
