The 2015 La Jota Cabernet Franc is another sensational wine from Chris Caprenter in this vintage. This outstanding wine beings with seductive aromas of ripe blackberries, sweet black currants along with fresh herbs, licorice, leather, violets and exotic spices all developing beautifully in the glass. On the palate this is displays impressive structure with firm core laced with layers of currants and dark berry, framed by lovely spice undertones. This medium to full-bodied Cabernet Franc continues to impress with its remarkable overall balance and concentration through the finish. While this already a pleasure to drink, it will certainly go on to evolve nicely in bottle, and provide even more drinking pleasure over the next 15-20 years.
