2011 Anthonij Rupert, Cabernet Franc 6x75cl
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Enjoy it with beef and venison
Beguiling nose of ripe, dark berries and spicy fruitcake with some cedary cigarbox highlights. Rich and ripe in the mouth yet displaying elegance and refinement, the same spicy fruitcake and cedar flavours mingle with a deeper forest floor and cocoa powder note. Good firm frame of oak and rupe tannin but wood doesn't dominate the fruit. Gentle floral lilt at the tail end of a long aftertaste. Balanced throughout.
