TASTING PROFILE

2019 SMITH WOOTON CABERNET FRANC is bold and tannic with clear varietal character. Extended barrel aging enhances the tannin structure and adds to the wine’s aging potential. The wine opens with aromas of dried rose pedals and sweet roasted peppers with just a touch of spice. There is a memory of and dark cherries with tingles of spices as the wine coats the palate. The wine demonstrates classic leather notes on the finish. This is a classic Smith Wooton wine that coats the palate and leaves you craving another sip. This wine has the balance to age gracefully for a decade. Decanting the wine prior to drinking is recommended.
