A little harsh and vegetal out of the chute, but when you consider that Cab Franc accounts for the majority of the blend along with Petit Verdot, the greenish, herbal character makes more sense. In the mouth, it’s mildly citric, while grab and heat smother the finish. Good as a whole but fails to make a lasting impression because frankly there isn’t that much character or flavor.
