Brash Higgins FRNC Cabernet Franc 2014

Despite purposefully opening this to go with a slow roast lamb shoulder (admittedly on its second run in Le Creuset - long story), a sniff of its wild herb, underlying red fruit, with a little lavender and purple florals, had me wanting a good haunch of venison. 

Love how something as simple as an aroma (or a sound, a snippet of text flashing back into the memory, a photo) can take you back to a place visited long ago...

Here we have excellent varietal character: leafy, red fruit, a suggestion of mint even; lithe, good cut to it, a gentle meander around the palate with a chalky feel, balance of acid on the back of a good length. 91
