2004 Trespass Cabernet Franc

The 2004 Trespass Cabernet Franc, like the ’03 Franc before it, there is not a trace of the typical green character that tarnishes so many Cab Francs.

Beneath its heroic purple / black cloak is a hedonistic black cherry aroma spiced with a small dusting of cinnamon stick, clove and barrel vanillin.  It is very blissful.

Chocolate dipped red cherries and plum fruit rule the entry on the palate.  The ripe fruit is backed by masculine but balanced tannins that surround the entirety of the mouth finishing like a fine Bordeaux.

This is a serious wine with a stoic presence from the moment it enters your mouth through to a minute past the swallow.  It should continue to improve for 5 years and continue to hold its ripe spirit for 6 to 10 years.
