Murrieta's Well Los Tesoros Cabernet Franc 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose with more oak than fruit though late arriving notes of candied wild blackcherry does rise from the glass with time. Polished and restrained up front, with lots of rich but not weighty fruit, blueberries and candied cherry flavors are nicely done but lacks much of the earth and herb that distinguishes Cab Franc. There’s great depth to the fruit, nice clarity and moderate tannic clout with tannins that are crisp and refreshing. The finish is fairly long and shows of the same fruit and oak two step that the nose features. Very well done but ultimately simple. 86pts
