This wine has flavours of dark cherries, mocha and black plum, with hints of graphite and cigar box spice.

Production note

2013 was an outstanding red wine vintage and our three blocks of Cabernet Franc were hand-harvested the first week of November. After resting for 20 months in 52% new French oak, the resultant wine brings aromatics of dark cherries, mocha, black plum, with hints of graphite and cigar box spice.
