ORO EN PAZ CABERNET FRANC, CHALK HILL SONOMA 2014
NVWE Notes: Youthful, focused and “grippy”, yet food-worthy, this is Chalk Hill red all the way. The nose offers black raspberry, red currant, red and black cherry, pink peppercorn, rose, cedar, mace, sandalwood, tobacco, vanilla, bitter chocolate and dark earth in more or less equal measure. In the mouth, the texture seems lean and youthfully gutsy, as the appellation’s dark minerality, zest and tannin contribute to create a slightly rustic mouth-feel. Cab Franc’s fruity-floral personality is present in force however, so airing and food-service will “pretty-up” the package. The finish is long and dinner-balanced, and fatty meats will bring out the desired elegance. A bit of short-term cellaring will make it more supple and bring fruit to center-stage. 250 cases made.
