The 2014 Paleo (100% Cabernet Franc) shows an introverted personality, much like the Messorio from the same vintage. With a few stern swirls of the glass, the wine begins to show increased substance and grit with black fruit, cured leather and spice aromas. The wine oozes darkness overall. It appears opulent and bold in terms of aromas, yet the mouthfeel is more streamlined and compact instead. In terms of the palate, this edition of Paleo definitely needs to flesh out further with additional cellar aging.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
JS: Pretty berry and currant character with hints of sandalwood and rose. Medium body, tight and chewy tannins and a fresh and polished finish. Drink or hold.
