Made of 100% Cabernet Franc aged 30 months in 80% new French oak, with an additional six months in bottle, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Franc Wandering Star gives up a beautiful resiny nose with a core of kirsch, redcurrants and mulberries plus pencil shavings, menthol and earth. Full and rich with an herbal lift and grainy tannins, it finishes long and perfumed.
Not far off the quality of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the 100% Cabernet Franc 2015 Wandering Star reveals a ruby/purple col-or as well as a complex array of earthy dark fruits, damp earth, spring flowers, and hints of vanilla. It’s a gorgeously layered, seamless Cabernet Franc that has moderate tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. It will deliver the goods over the coming 10-15 years. 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2019)
