The bright but lighter red colour is a good cue for the flavour profile to come. The aroma has berry notes as well as a hint of pepper. Plums and berries mix with 5 spice.
The palate defies the norm a little. Up front as well as the berries there is a spicy peppery note.
In the mid-palate the wine is quite smooth and well-integrated. There are some fruit notes and a hint of the sweetness of roast capsicum
Unusually the finish has a really fruity fresh persistence of raspberries as the wine lingers in your mouth. The fruit seems to dominate the subtle tannins of the Cab Franc.
A lovely wine for rich but not heavy foods, Italian anything – Pizza to Pasta. Would suit tomato rich casseroles.
