Big Head 2015 Cabernet Franc Select

Like your Franc big rich and bold? Then Big Head’s big head, Andrzej Lipinski, has a wine for you: left 40 days on skins and fully appassimento-ed this wine took 11 months to ferment dry – then spent a total of 17 months in cigar barrels (a Big Head trademark) of which 50% were new. The wine has that tobacco note familiar in Franc, plus some spiced-raspberry, a hint of balsamic, plus black cherry and a delicate cocoa finish: it’s big, it’s bold and it’s a delight for the palate.  Price: $55.00 – Rating: ****
