Fabre Cabernet Franc Reserva

Fabre Cabernet Franc Reserva

Vintage: 2017
Description: Hervé Fabre, for the second time, was named the 2019 “Argentine Winemaker of the Year” at the International Wine & Spirits competition, where this Cab Franc won a Gold Medal (again). Argentine specialist Tim Atkin rated it 93 points, above most Argentine reds three times its price. But as usual, Tanzer really nailed it with this review:. Bright red-ruby. Pungent, lively aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, licorice and espresso. Dense, refined and light on its feet; a very ripe, smooth, fine-grained Cabernet Franc with well-judged oak and enticing sweetness to its dark berry fruit and forest floor flavors. Finishes very long and suavely tannic. In a fairly plush, ripe, chocolatey style but very Cabernet Franc in character, given shape by harmonious acidity. (this bottling features gold print on a black label)
Price: $14.99
