Bloodwood Cabernet Franc 2014

Varietal Cabernet Franc from the Orange GI - more please.

Cherry compote with a little of the leafy aromatics oft associated with the variety. It’s certainly attractive in its aromatic proposition. 

Medium bodied, cracked pepper inflected blackcurrant; savoury initially morphing to more black fruit in its profile. An interesting mix, a wine that veers from fruit-to meat- to savoury and then spiced. Complex, yet also with a languid and easy going appeal. It somehow pulls that off with ease.

A yes from me. 92
