2003 Trespass Cabernet Franc

The 2003 Trespass Cabernet Franc is a diamond in the ruff.  Unlike many of its peers, there is not a trace of vegginess of any kind.

Spellbindingly dark, this Franc begins with the warmth of toasted oak, black cherry-vanilla, slight hints of dried currants and plum.  The slightly dusty tannins surround thick layers of ripe red fruit with great success on the palate.  The cherry core of this wine includes with it a long, delicate finish.  The flavors are very mature and complex, reminiscent of old vines, even from this young vineyard.

Expect this wine to improve for 3 to 5 years and survive well to 8 to 12 years.
