Wolffer Caya Cabernet Franc 2015
Dark, red brick in color. Fantastic aromas such as vibrant cassis, ripe black fruits, and finely toasted sandalwood fill the glass backed by dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and some classic iodine notes. The mouth-feel is rich and fills up the whole pallet. There is great concentration and loads of soft velvety tannins. Beautifully balanced by great minerality and lush ripe fruit, the wine has a long finish with wonderful intensity, playfulness, elegant spice and a lovely earthiness that provides great texture and structure. This is a classic style big Cabernet Franc from a great vintage - a perfect companion to food. Pairing: Serve slightly below room temperature. Pair this special wine with big flavors, such as lamb, steak, aged cheeses and good quality chocolate with a high percentage of cacao. Or enjoy it on its own…with no distractions.
