Medium intensity with nose of raspberry, ripe red cherry, sage, tomato leaf and a dash of white pepper.

On the palate, dry with medium+ acid, featuring crabapple, allspice, cherry and raspberry. A medium+ savoury finish.

A nice medium-bodied savoury cool-climate Cabernet Franc, from the region that specialises. Quite versatile, and an excellent choice when you don't want a fruit or alcohol bomb.

Tasted October 2016.
