The 2010 Paramour offers exquisite aromas of blackberry, blueberry and mint. This authentic expression of Cabernet Franc showcases layers of chocolate and nutmeg and combines with fine-grained tannin and cedar overlay. The supple finish is round and balanced, providing persistent length of flavor.
94 points, Wine Enthusiast (8/1/2013): "...It has plenty of staunch tannins, but they’re as finely woven as a silk tapestry, while the flavors are dazzling, suggesting black cherries, red currants and hints of dark chocolate and anise..."
92+ points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (May/June 2013): " ...Brooding aromas of black fruits, dark chocolate, roast coffee and menthol, with a hint of violet and a strong element of chocolatey oak..."
92 points, Wine Spectator (Oct. 15, 2013): " ...Elegant, graceful, deftly balanced young wine that retains focus and persistence..."
91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (May 2013): "... It is full and a touch on the fleshy side on the palate yet it avoids any sense of corpulence, and instead finds a nice sturdy underlying structure..."
Very Good+ (91 Points), Ken's Wine Guide (May 20, 2013): "This opaque and pitch black colored opens with a blackberry and boysenberry bouquet with hints of anise. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is boysenberry and black currant blend with notes of anise and integrated oak in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a touch sticky and fade away nicely. This wine would pair well with a ribeye steak. Enjoy." -Ken
