以前も飲んだJarvis、今回はCabernet Franc 2005。
小売店では扱われていない、Napaからのハンドキャリー品。

やっぱり美味い。

2005 Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc as a varietal often goes unrecognized on its own due to its popular use in blended wines. But Dimitri Tchelistcheff, our Winemaker Consultant, considers our Cabernet Franc to be one of the best wines he produces; which makes it no surprise that this varietal is one of our most sought after. The Jarvis 2005 Cabernet Franc has a deep lavender brilliance in the glass which adds to the delight of the drinking experience. Eighteen months of barrel aging in new French Haute Futaie oak adds a hint of toasty vanilla to the lavender and cassis aromas of this wine. A delightful combination of spicy blueberry and black cherry flavors linger elegantly throughout the finish. This charming wine can be enjoyed immediately upon release because of its concentration of fruit and incredible structure. This wine has been cave aged and was released when our winemaker felt it was ready for full enjoyment. Best to consume within ten years.
