K&L Notes

A rich ruby red with notes of violets and red berry fruits, this Cabernet Franc is nicely layered on the palate with brightness running throughout and just a touch of smoke mixed in with some purple fruits. Soft waves of mineral with a nice soft tannin make this a true delight to drink. Domaine les Pins has been family run for five generations. They are a small artisanal producer that oversees every stage of production from start to finish themselves. They have roughly 30 hectares of Cabernet Franc spread out through the Bourgueil and Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil regions. They practice sustainable farming and each and every vine get singular attention throughout the year. Vines of an average age of 25 years have been planted in sandy, clay and gravel soils. After harvest, grapes are de-stemmed, sorted and put into tank to begin spontaneous fermentation. After being pressed off and letting malolactic fermentation happen, the wine is put into concrete tank for at least 10 months prior to bottling.

The nose is deep and dark with savory undertones from the first sniff. There's lots of dark black fruit - blackcurrant, blackberry with hints of pomegranate all mired in an earthy nose filled with a green peppercorn driven herbaceousness. The medium body still has a healthy amount of tannins, but despite its youth it's very approachable. The fruit on the palate is bright and lighter than the nose, with raspberry and cranberry and bits of black cherry that meld into a lingering and enjoyable earthy and lightly spiced finish.
