De Trafford Wines, Cabernet Franc 2013, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Tasting Note: A cabernet franc with a distinct South African identity that would compete well on the world stage.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, raspberry, white flowers and clove baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied cabernet franc delivers flavors suggested on the nose buttressed by soft, velvety, medium tannin.
The wine has structure and concentration.
