Raats Family 2017 Cabernet Franc (Stellenbosch)

Lovely herbal aromatics lead the nose here, expressed in waves of fresh tobacco leaf, singed laurel, blackberry leaf, light char and just-ripe black plum. The palate is medium in weight and more red in fruit character than the nose initially offers, with more whole, leafy green herb tones. The tannins are robust upon entry but then resolve nicely through the sip and finish, ending with a kiss of red plum and cherry flavor. Drink now–2031. Lauren Buzzeo
