Cabernet Franc
Truly and exemplary Cabernet Franc. Red currant, smoke and tobacco leaf dominate the nose and palate, which is medium bodied with ripe, slightly gravelly tannins, great concentration with a long layered finish of blackberries, cola and dried herbs. Drink now with grilled rib eye, or cellar till 2023.
