FRANC-LY SPEAKING

Vividly dark ruby. Here is a captivating chorus of scents. Leading off in the front
isle: black fruit (plum, cherry, current) backed up by red berry fruit. A full-on tannic structure, youthful in nature suspended by recurring red berry jam. A two-hour aeration suggested.

The understanding of Prince Edward County cabernet franc is by now something to wrap one’s palate around, what with its particularity by herbal-aperitif and intensity of swarthy tang. The old vines in Huff’s 2018 add concentration and lift to what we already know and feel about these rare and fine wines. Almost as if this could be no other grape grown anywhere else. In other words proper, correct, in adherence to varietal drift and well, classic. Drink 2020-2023. Tasted August 2020.
