Red-fruited on the nose, the 2017 Family Cabernet Franc has a juicy core of dark cherry and black raspberry with subtly spiced herbs. On the palate, the wine still shows tight but has good complexity and freshness, showing a subtle dusty rose sensation that is persistent. The finish is spicy, mineral-driven and ends with a soft herbal flavor. Medium-bodied, it’s a tasty expression of Cabernet Franc. 9,150 bottles were created.

The nose entices with its perfume and a garrigue character of Cape fynbos, rosemary, lavender and thyme with spicy notes of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. Intense brooding blackberry fruit, graphite and a streak of minerality add to the complexity of the nose.
