The nose begins with a distinctive aroma of deep plum fruit with floral hints of jasmine, which fades into a sweet oak smell. Provenance's first Cabernet Franc is impressive with a smooth entry on the palate. A firm structured middle gives this delicate varietal some muscle. The deep black fruits accentuate the sweet oak finish on both the palate and the nose.
