Painted Rock Estate Grown Cabernet Franc 2013
On the nose this wine entices you into the glass with its fresh, bright aromas of cassis, black plum, baking spices, rosemary, capsicum and smoky notes. Serious complexity with more spice, pepper and vegetal notes on the palate followed by fresh black plums, cherries and blackberries, with well balanced, high acidity and chalky tannins that continue to linger. Some of the tomato leaf quality of Loire Cabernet Franc with greater richness and weight, ripe fruit with plum, blackberry and cherry overlaid with subtle vanilla oak notes. Beautifully balanced with fresh acidity and long length.
