2015 Oakville Cabernet Franc
This archetypal expression of Cabernet Franc is the zenith of Fortuna and Leopoldina Vineyard synthesis.
Resonant and seductive aromatics compel a joyful first sip. Unctuous dark plums and farm-ripened macerated raspberries follow, filling the edges. Soft notes of toffee and roasted herbs couple to underscore a classically lifted red fruit core of depth and grace.
Praise from The Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Franc Oakville opens with crushed blackcurrants, red plums and black cherries aromas with hints of pencil shavings and underbrush. Full-bodied and laden with red and black fruit layers, it has a fine-grained backbone and plenty of freshness, finishing long with a lovely herbal lift." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown. 93+ Points.
