Le Macchiole Paleo Bolgheri Cabernet Franc 2013

$68.95

Paleo is a pure expression of Cabernet Franc first made in 2001. The 2013 Paleo shows a soft and feminine side with rose petal, lavender, wet earth, rosemary and dark fruit. These are beautiful but unexpected qualities. The wine is ever so reflective of the grape variety, but it also does a great job of incorporating Tuscan ideals, with sunshine, grace and generosity among them. As you dig deeper, Paleo reveals more surprising layers. The finish is soft and slightly sweet. Paleo reveals something new each time you go back to the glass to take a new sip. This wine promises a long aging future. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Thoroughly enjoyable. Not much of bouquet on the nose. Earthy & smooth. 1 hr decant. May revisit in few yrs.

This is consistently matter the year that I’ve had, the best single vocab frog that I found. The 2013 Paleo was no exception. Silky smooth with some underlying earthtones and some dark fruit. Tannic features of this wine still present, and should cellar for another decade or more.
