Oldenburg Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2008

Oldenburg Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2008

An inky, crimson colour with plenty of life. The nose brings forth ripe cherries, black currants and freshly picked herbs. Plush mocha and coffee flavours help create a rich, complex palate. Acid and tannins are well balance with no rough edges. A seamless wine with exceptional balance!

This wine can be enjoyed with a variety of meats but its spiciness and intensity could be well suited to game dishes.
