Waterbrook 2010 Icon Cabernet Franc (Columbia Valley (WA))

  1. $55
This varietal Cabernet Franc comes from Blackrock Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. The notes are light and high toned with dill, vanilla, fresh herbs and dusty cherry. The 40% new American oak drives much of the flavor as well as the tannins, which come off as a bit too aggressive.  — S.S.  (5/1/2013)
