2020 Garzon Reserve Cabernet Franc
From Uruguay and the "New World Winery of the Year, 2018".
A strong purple color with violet reflections, this noble red wine has mineral aromas coming from ripe peppers, spices and fruits of the forest accompanied by a subtle chocolate note and smoked hints coming from selected barrels. With gentle tannins in mouth, it mixes prunes and ripe blackberries with fresh eucalyptus and mint notes that add to its complexity.

The vineyard sources for this wine are surrounded by rocky soils and granite boulders a mere 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Following a floral entrance of lavender and jasmine, lean notes of slate and espresso take center stage. Plum skin and dark chocolate–covered raisins take hold with chewy tannins.

A richer expression of cabernet franc, showing black fruit, tea leaves, dark olives and graphite. Medium to full body with very firm, fine-grained tannins. A hint of wet-stone character, too. Well made. Drink or hold.
Decanter, 91 points
Restrained and elegant nose of fresh fruit, while the palate has supple tannins and a lovely smoky finish.
