2013 James Estate Hunter Valley Cabernet Franc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Sourced from their Little Sicily blocks in the Hunter Valley, this James Estate Cabernet Franc shows dusty blackcurrant and spice with hints of gooseberry and violets. It's a medium to full bodied wine with ripe fruit flavours balanced by savoury notes and subtle oak. Pair it with a steak and you're good to go!
