Hector Cabernet Franc 2015: $22 Very Good

The Hector Wine Company Cabernet Franc (Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $22 [Very Good] is an easy going quaffer, with solid juicy Cabernet Franc flavors and good balance.  This would be a nice bottle to share with friends after work or for a wine and cheese party.

Medium ruby in color, aromas of candied raspberry fruit, lead pencil, tobacco and a dash of peppery spice are solid.  Medium bodied, with light firm tannin and an unstructured mouth feel, balance is good.  Juicy uncomplicated flavors of raspberry are lightly accented by lead pencil, vanilla, tobacco and peppery spice.  The finish turns slightly gritty, with good length.  January 2018
