The Debate – Cabernet Franc 2017, Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard – Napa Valley

The nose is fresh, fruity and offers a beautiful power and finesse. It reveals notes of ripe/fresh cassis, fresh blueberry and small notes of fleshy raspberry associated with fine touches of violet, cornflower, grey pepper and a discreet hint of cardamom. The mouth is fresh, fruity, mineral and offers a good definition, gourmandize as well as an acidulous/juicy frame, tension as well as dynamism. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, juicy/fleshy blackberry and small notes of liquorice, dark chocolate as well as hints of cornflower, lily as well as fine hints of liquorice and graphite. Good persistence.
