The Cabernet Franc component is under 5%, but it still adds to the wines complexity. Similar aromas and flavours to the beautifully perfumed 96, but with more fine tannin on the finish. Only 150 cases produced, hence the six bottle limit to be as fair as possible. Superb structure. Great longevity, but try it now. 15.0% alc/vol
