2014 Flora Springs All Hallows' Eve Cabernet Franc
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.
