REVIEW: Early Mountain Vineyards 2015 Shenandoah Valley Cabernet Franc
Black and blue fruits (berries and plums) show some dried herb overtones on a classic, varietally correct nose. The palate shows similar fruit qualities, but the earthy and savory side is much more prominent. Fruit bomb-lovers needn't apply here. Silky mouthfeel with some gritty tannins at the end of a long, earthy finish. This is a cabernet franc-lover's cabernet franc.
