Owen Roe Rosa Mystica Cabernet Franc 2017
|Region||United States, Washington, Yakima Valley|
Bright, deep ruby-red. Medicinal but subtle and inviting aromas of blackcurrant, crushed blueberry, violet and licorice. Still a bit reduced and reserved on the palate, but the cassis and huckleberry flavors show good texture and an attractive restrained sweetness. Finishes with a broad dusting of tannins, an element of medicinal reserve, and slowly rising dark fruit flavors. A superb value. (14.1% alcohol)
Tightly wound, with expressive cherry and blueberry flavors, accented by lead pencil and tea details and building toward broad-shouldered tannins. Best after 2019. 1,197 cases made.
