Franschhoek Cellar The Churchyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Dark in color with a nice dark cherry nose along with a hint of match stick. On the mid palate the wine displays nice dark cherries, and dark chocolate notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some edgy tannins and vibrant acidity, nice and dry. For this price this is not a bad cab sauv at all. I would give it an 88, not as elegant as some, but nice in it’s own right. From the LCBO web site, check stock: Now as it happens this is back to back on the Pomar Junction so how do these compare? The Pomar is a richer mid palate, softer more refined, but heh this is cheaper 😉

Franschhoek Cellar The Churchyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from LCBO

Matured for 8-12 months in French oak, this wine is known for evocative blackcurrant, blackberry and violet notes along with spicy and smoky shading, while its structured tannins make it a divinely inspired choice for roast beef cooked rare. The producer suggests it’ll show best through 2023.
