Honsberger 2019 Cabernet Franc

The fruit component of this year's version of this Honsberger staple seems a little lacking. Yes, there's some aromas of black raspberry, and beets, but it seems overshadowed by tobacco and olive tapenade. Palate suffers the same fate: toasty, tobacco with hints of smoke plus black cherry ... it's lean of fruit, but the secondary and tertiary notes are out of this world with hints of coffee bean and smoke on the finish.  Price: $35.00 - Rating: *** ½+
