Taste it Again: Lailey 2010 Unfiltered Cabernet Franc

30 Jul 2015

(April 4, 2015) ... What on God's green earth made me open this "baby" of a wine I am not sure, curiosity more than anything - this is a wine that a decade of ageing will barely touch - but I just had to see where in its evolution it is. So here we are 5 years from vintage and the nose doles out aromas of tobacco, dried raspberry and herbal notes while the palate seem to be a lot fresher and much more inviting, with layer upon layer of flavour including: smoky-vanilla, cassis, roasted plum, and a pleasant toastiness ... there's also elements of anise, smoky-cassis & raspberry. If you have some of this in you cellar have no fear, you have plenty of time yet but it's always good to pull one out every so often just to visit and make sure your not missing anything really special.
