Meeker Dry Creek Cabernet Franc 2015
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
This is classic Cabernet Franc: Light, lean stonefruit like white cherries on the nose under a canopy of sage, jalapeño, violets, and eucalyptus. Full-bodied and structured through the mid-palate before an elongated finish that will reward aging for up to 20 years.
Rich red cherry and cinnamon highlight a big-boned wine that's lengthy in clove, cinnamon and dried herb. The components work well within brawny, chalky tannin and toasted oak.
