Lieb Family Cellars Cabernet Franc North Fork Bridge Lane 2008
"The 2006 Reserve Cabernet Franc opens with unique floral aromatics of lavender and rose petal. Herbs and spices take a backseat to fruit forward notes of red raspberry, red currents, and red cherry. Subtle spearmint adds a fresh twist. The palate has nice structure with lively acidity up front and fruit tannins suppling the mid-palate. These bolder flavors slowly dissolve into a soft, integrated finish of sweet red fruits." (Winemaker's notes)<br/><br/>
Amazingly earthy off the bat which gradually levels off into great dark but not potent fruit. Great acid, long finish.
