Tamarack Cellars Cabernet Franc 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

25 to 33 new wood, all French Glossy on the nose, all freshly crushed berry fruit with a nice hint of balsam and herb. Very well integrated tannins lend this a smooth yet seamless feel. Very perfumed in the mouth with layers of blue flowers, gentle vanilla oak,and cool blue fruit all coming together in a fairly lighter styled, elegant and fresh package. This is quite transparent and fresh with lively tannins. 91ts
