Fairview Cellars 2010 Cabernet Franc - 89-90pts
Availability: Contact winery directly here
Production: 280 cases
Date Tasted: May 6th, 2012
Tasting Notes: A cool, but long 2010 growing season has given birth to a low alcohol and nuanced Cabernet Franc that offers a warm, feminine nose of violets, mandarin peel, ripe blackberry, boysenberry and soft oak aromas. A smooth mouth feel awaits on the dry, medium-bodied palate that offers fine, mannered tannins and delicate layers of berry fruit and mineral flavours. The acid is mouth watering but well balanced and far from tart. Reminiscent of a Pinot Noir crossed with a Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy this wine on its own or with roasted red meats. Drink mid-2013-2017.
