Dark in color with a nice dark cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice smooth dark cherries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth acidity and tannins. Without food there’s also some noticeable peppery notes, it’s nice and dry This is a food friendly, approachable, drink now style of cab franc. I would give it a solid 88. To my knowledge this is one of only a few single varietal cab francs out of Argentina, but hopefully a sign of more to come!

100% Cabernet Franc. Gorgeous example of Cabernet Franc. Youthful with potential to explode with floral perfumed notes, cassis and clove. Great depth. Its harmony saves it from becoming truculent, but protein is needed. Score – 96. (Decanter World Wine Awards, 2018)
