CREW Cabernet Franc 2016

Dark in color with a mild dark berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice varietal dark berry notes to match the nose. On the medium length finish there’s some nice pepper, spice and tannins. It’s a nice smooth approachable Cab franc. I would give it an -88. It’s nice and dry with smooth acidity. Quite food friendly.

This has quite a lot going on. There’s nice intensity to the ripe red fruit tones, and they have plenty of support from sweet spice, chocolate, vanilla, sandalwood and leather notes. Long, rich, rounded and lithe. Try this with barbecued sausages, grilled pork chops, or a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2018)
