Served at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. 2008 $150.00 2005 Cabernet Franc - Library Numbers (#73-300) It's core, just shy of opaque, gleams with rich, deep-ruby hue. All of the hallmarks of a well-grown Cabernet Franc show themselves in this wine. It has a fragrance reminiscent of a bramble thicket full of ripe raspberries and blackberries. It flaunts its rich perfume of sweet fruit and dried aromatic herbs. Its flavors ally with its aromatics by contributing layers of complexity.
