Thirty Bench 1997 Cabernet Franc Reserve

Tonight I had the opportunity to drink a bottle of the Thirty Bench vineyards 1997 Cabernet Franc Reserve.  I was out for dinner at Trattoria Vitoria in Ottawa, which is a marvelous little Italian restaurant in the market.  The wine opened up very quickly, with a light, perfumy nose.  Well balanced, with a good mix of tannins, acid, and a definite tangy raspberry taste, but not overpoweringly fruity or jammy.   Very long finish.  I’d buy this one again.
