Shady Lane Cellars 2016 Cabernet Franc
High-toned red fruits -- think red raspberries, cranberries and pomegranates – are accented on the nose by notes of black pepper and savory herbs.
That herbaceous nature is a bit more pronounced and there is a hint of dusty chocolate at the edges of a soft, somewhat juicy palate that shows a beautiful balance between fresh red fruits and savory flavors. The finish is medium-length with a sweet fruit note and some leafy earthiness.
