Bespoke Cabernet Franc
2015 Cabernet Franc
Visual: Bright and intense dark cherry colour with nuances of purple. The legs are heavy and slow. Nose: Elegant and complex bouquet of dark blackcurrant, violet, plum and earthiness with waves of spicy oak and forest fruit. The second nose displays more floral notes of dried flowers and roses, with a touch of vanilla and toasted oak. Palate: This wine displays a firm attack with good tension between black forest fruit and minerality. The midpalate is rich, structured and balanced around a nice core of fruit and freshness. Wildflowers, red berries and spices deliver an elegant body that balances well with the thick texture and smooth skeleton of the tannins. The finish is long and persistent with tension, tannins and fruit weight with hints of oak spice.
