Camberley, Cabernet Franc 2014, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Tasting Note: Oh South Africa, you do impress and surprise.
This wine presents the softer side of cabernet franc without the potent, green, cold-climate elements for which Loire cabernet franc is known.
Deep-intensity ruby in color this wine has a nose of red plum, pencil shavings, damp forest floor, violet white blossom with hints of mushroom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet franc is supple with riper-leaning black fruit flavors.
