Tamarack Cabernet Franc 2014
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
This 100% varietal wine offers fairly locked up aromas of dried herb, red and black fruit, and barrel spice. The flavors are ripe and dark fruited, with a lovely sense of texture and presence that carries through the finish.
Ripe and generous, with dark plum and chocolate flavors balanced against red pepper and violet overtones. Finishes with firm tannins and good length.
A good value, the 2014 Cabernet Franc (100% Cabernet Franc aged in 30% new French oak) is a medium-bodied, pretty, beautifully pure 2014 that has forward notes of plums, blackberry liqueur, wildflowers and spice. It falls off on the finish, but has plenty to like.
