Bodega Benegas Benegas Lynch Cabernet Franc 2007
Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Libertad Vineyards Cabernet Franc is apparently from pre-phylloxera vines and is aged for eighteen months in new French oak. It has an intense, minty bouquet with dark cherries, blackberry and iodine. The palate is sweet on the entry, with notes of dark red cherries, bay leaf, soy and orange peel. The tannins are rather obtrusive towards the finish. I cannot help wondering - would this have been better a year or two ago? Drink now.
