Tasting Notes: The nose of the Stag's Hollow Cabernet Franc is both subtle and powerful. The power comes from intense concentration of dark berries and French oak aromas accompanied by layers of pleasant, subtle notes of flowers, fresh tobacco and a touch of light chorizo sausage. The equally intense palate begins with juicy, ripe berry flavours followed closely by savoury oak, minerality, dried herbs and potpourri incense characters. The balance is spot on with good acidity and a long finish with lingering Cab Franc funk and a plash of spice. Drink early-2012-2016.
