Colour: Profound vermillion red colour with ruby hues. Nose: Aromas of black ripe fruit and roasted pepper together with the typical freshness of the variety mingle softly with the fermentation notes rendering elegance and hints of cocoa and vanilla. Mouth: Powerful wine with juicy and ripe tannins. In the mid palate it exhibits a set of layers where the aromas appear and complement the wine, giving it an elegant and very expressive long finish. Ageing capacity: 15 - 20 years. This wine matches very well with slowly cooked game as well as barbecues and complex sauces. Also ideal to combine with hard sheep and cow milk cheeses.

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.
