Cabernet Franc is used to add finesse and spice to the world’s top Bordeaux blends and when treated with well-deserved respect and sufficient aging produces and silky smooth and luxurious wine that envelopes the drinker in its restrained elegance. The 2016 harvest featured a warm, dry and windy summer which kept vineyard growth under control. The dry weather also led to one of the healthiest seasons in years with concentrated fruit and exceptional concentration and strong tannic structure.
What can you expect?
The wine exemplifies old world charm with its elegance and silky mouth feel. Notes of spice and pepper come to the foreground supported by a berceuse of blackberries and tobacco that leaves a long lingering after taste.
Consider rich cuts of red meat, well-aged cheese or wild game as a food partner to this richly concentrated wine.
With its good acid and tannin backbone this wine is made to last and will happily mature in one’s cellar for a further 10 to 20 years.
