2016 Clos du Val "Hirondelle Vineyard" Stags Leap District Cabernet Franc

SKU #1496979 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A wine with soft contours and no hard edges, the 2016 Cabernet Franc Hirondelle Estate Vineyard is very expressive, even in the early going. Torrefaction, chocolate, spice and menthol notes are fused together in a beautifully layered, open-knit Cabernet Franc that holds considerable near and medium-term appeal. Time in barrel has softened the wine nicely and perhaps also mellowed some of the explosive energy the wine showed in its youth. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, cinnamon and minty notes brightened up this gorgeous wine from Clos du Val. It will be interesting to see if the Franc gains a bit more energy as it bounces back from its recent bottling. 93+ (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)
