Xavier Weisskopf, Le Rocher Des Violettes Cabernet Franc 2016, Touraine, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A basic, entry-level Loire cabernet franc that pairs well with fall.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity, aromatic nose of crushed-dried violet, red plum, black tea, blossom, forest floor and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied cabernet franc delivers flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-green, medium tannin.
The wine is slightly-grippy in texture with some tart, red fruit on the mid-palate.
