Pearl Morissette 2017 Cabernet Franc, Cuvee Madeline

From the 19th Street Vineyard, aged 24 months in older barrels, then settled in cement before bottling. There's some slight reductive notes here. (volatile acidity) mostly on the nose with tension on the palate between the smoky, tannins, green pepper, cassis and tobacco; there's also quite a bit of texture, but the fight here is between the tobacco - cassis and leather and those smoky - tannins. Time will declare the winner.  Price: $58.00 - Rating: *** ½+
