Region Argentina, Mendoza
Grape Cabernet Franc
Style Black olive, Game, Blackcurrant
Bottle Size 75cl
This was an absolute gem of a find for us earlier this year. The nose is super pure and fresh, it's like taking in the mountain air of the Uco Valley itself.
Definite pencil lead-y graphite aromas on the nose with a leafy freshness that Cabernet Franc is known for, but without being overpowering like some. Taste wise, much of the above but with with a firm, proper intensity as well as deep fruit of cassis, crushed rocks and sour cherry.
If you like Malbec from Mendoza and want to broaden your horizons then this is the one. It'll open up Cab Franc for you too which is an often overlooked varietal but can lead to so much pleasure.
