Mature fruit in 2005 Smith Wooton Cabernet Franc creates a wine reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux. This is unmistakably Cabernet Franc, big and bold with clear varietal character. Extended barrel aging enhances the tannin structure and adds to the wine's aging potential. When the wine is poured the earthy aroma explodes long before the glass is touched to the lips. At the first sip, it fills the mouth with dark, rich, earthy flavors. It evolves slowly in the glass, so don't hurry.
