Palaia Vineyards Cabernet Franc Hudson River 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nutty on the nose with plenty of wood spice and vanilla tones, but that is balanced by rather floral and slightly spicy berry fruit. Soft and bright on the palate with a fairly nutty overlay to the base of rich raspberry fruit. This has a touch of RS accenting the fruit and adding weight on the palate, which also brings out the candy quality of the vanilla oak. The finish is a bit drying, short and clumsy. 80pts
