IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

 

Reserve Cabernet Franc

2015

A varietally-true wine, this Reserve Cabernet Franc has a gorgeous violet color. Aromatics of pepper and spice lead to flavors of ripe blackberries, eucalyptus, mint, and dark chocolate. French oak barrel aging added to this wine's complexity.

Consulting winemaker Alberto Antonini has high hopes for cabernet franc at Garzón and we can see why. Fermentation in large concrete tanks, this spent 6-12 months on the lees in French barrels and casks. Intense medicinal-scented blackberry and cherry aromas lead into a softer palate of the same, with light smoke, branch and dark-cocoa dusted tannins swelled by a gentle lift of acidity. Very structured, this full-bodied cabernet franc is brightened with fresh minerality throughout. Highly drinkable now - especially with grilled meats or mushroom ragout - but you could age this through 2020 with no issues. Impressive.

The multiple plots in Garzón cover both hill slopes. The size is less than a hectare for each plot and they have different orientations and humidity levels. This fact allows developing different little vineyards and creating a special environment where native forests are combined with big rocks and natural palm trees.

This is the best place for the Cabernet Franc Reserva 2015 to ripe. Its production process takes between 6 and 12 months and is carried out in 50 HL untoasted French oak barrels and bottis.

Its colouring is purple and intense and has violet reflections. This noble red wine has mineral aromas coming from ripe peppers, spices and fruits of the forest accompanied by a subtle chocolate note and smoked hints coming from selected barrels. It has an impacting mouth with nice tannins, mixing prunes and ripe blackberries with fresh eucalyptus and mint notes that make it very complex.
