"The 2005 Cabernet Franc is dark ruby-colored with a multi-dimensional perfume of smoke, menthol, earth, clove, red currants, and blackberry. Supple-textured and sweet on the palate, the wine has superior depth and length in its complex personality. Allow it to evolve for 3-5 years and drink it through 2027. For those who want to experience high-quality Cabernet Franc without paying Cheval Blanc or Dalla Valle Maya prices, this is the one. Kudos to Tamarack Cellars for an outstanding, individualistic lineup of well-priced wines. "
