Wine Enthusiast:

"Thick and rich in black sugarplum, this memorable Pritchard Hill-grown red is lovely and bold, velvety in texture with a softness to the firm, integrated tannin. Dried herb and spice provide memorable seasonings amidst a larger theater of dark chocolate, leather, clove and pepper."

Product Description:

"The 2012 vintage has yielded a beautifully concentrated expression of mountain-grown Cabernet Franc that is both elegant and powerful. Aromas of ripe berry, cherry and dark chocolate leap from the glass, followed by more nuanced notes of cedar, clove, leather, coffee, rosemary and white pepper. The palate is plush and complex, with supple, mouthfilling tannins and flavors of earth, graphite and minerals underscoring alluring layers of blackberry, espresso and chocolate." -Winery
