CORISON Cabernet Franc, Sunbasket Vineyard 'Helios' 2017

Sourced from the Sunbasket Vineyard, the 2017 'Helios' Cabernet Franc from is simply gorgeous. Cathy Corison has crafted this stunning Cabernet Franc which showcases the varietal in its purest form. It opens to pretty aromatics of raspberries and cassis, which are laced with smoldering tobacco, licorice, anise and spring flowers that all come together and emerge beautifully from the glass.  On the palate this possesses a refined medium body, with a fine silky texture that is impeccably balanced and displays remarkable finesse all the way through the graceful finish. This is an absolutely beautiful, elegant display of Cabernet Franc from Corison that should go on to evolve nicely, however it is also utterly delightful to approach at this youthful age.
