Blue Poles Vineyard
Reserve Cabernet Franc
Gary Walsh from 'The Wine Front' says...
"This is supple and succulent with the perfume of the grape, and the bay leaf fragrance of the region rolled in to boot. Redcurrant and boysenberry, dried herbs and baking spices, gentle mocha oak folded in beautifully. Medium bodied with a crispness and bright definition to the fruit, though certainly it’s on the riper side of the Franc spectrum. Tannin spreads out nicely, and feels open-weave, and almost biteable, acidity is clean and nicely threaded, and the finish is long and tweaked by slightly tart red fruits. Fair to say they’ve done very well with this wine. Reckon it will improve and settle with a fair number of years cellaring too."
