2014 Stoney Rdige Cab Franc

Dark in color with a mild red cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice red cherries coming through. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lively acidity along with some smooth tannins and dryness. This is definitely a softer milder cab franc. Very approachable and an easy drinker. I would give it an 88 or so, given the price is not a bad deal at all.
