Idiom 900 Series Cabernet Franc

R660.00

A three barrel limited release Cabernet Franc. A concentrated, full-bodied wine with ripe red plum and cranberry aromas. Opulent and rich flavours of cassis and black pepper heighten the senses. A wine with a precise tannin structure that carves and leaves a memorable Cabernet Franc imprint in the mouth. An experience not to be missed. This wine deserves cellaring. Decanting recommended.
