Cracka Review

This cab franc offering from Howard Vineyard is a fullsome style that has seen some generous oak. Smells of ripe raspberries and redcurrants decorate the nose, along with some trademark cab franc leafiness. The palate is quite dark-fruited, with a liberal lick of coffee and chocolate oak, surprisingly friendly tannins, and a mellow coffee-like finish. Serve with a slice of venison - rare!

Winemaker's Notes

The fruit for the 2010 Cabernet Franc comes from a single vineyard located immediately behind our cellar door. Vibrant crimson red, the 2010 Cabernet Franc has lifted aromas of dark red berries, fig and seasoned oak. Rich varietal characters of raspberry, blackberry and fig flow through the palate followed by a smooth mocha finish.

Best served with game meat dishes!

Lifted and floral bouquet, with a gentle hint of spice; the palate is generous on entry, but tightens gracefully to conclude with an even-handed level of red fruit on the finish.
