It’s amazing that a red with such a different range of flavor could come from the heart of malbec country. This splendid cabernet franc starts with a wispy bouquet of orange and musk and then continues to ring the changes: pimenton mixes with sweet cilantro and cocoa beans, with the citrus tang enduring in the background. Practically weightless and smooth all over, the winemaker’s craft is well in evidence here.
