Cabernet Franc's aromatic, lovely leafiness cannot be denied and beckons you to taste. The palate is of classic stature: fine-boned, poised, dense with finely woven Cabernet tannins, fleshed out with the charming plum fruit of Merlot and spiced with just a little vanilla. Whoever made this had elegance in mind. Wonderfully balanced. Drink 2018–2025.

German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
