Tasting Note:October 13, 2016

One of the three Halloween themed wines from Flora Springs. Ruby red with medium intensity. Very tight on the nose. Slight savory notes and some floral nuances. A little anise too. Some nutmeg and light cinnamon. Day two added some smokey notes, little greenery, and red berries. Dry and furry on the palate. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Moderate plus very dry finish. Some blueberries, dust, and almost a chalkiness texture to it too.

Made up of 100% Cabernet Franc from a single block on the Komes Ranch in Rutherford. Aged in a mix of new and one year old French oak barrels. Label designed by an award winning children's book illustrator John Manders.
