Brewer Raats is one of the greatest interpreters of Cabernet Franc anywhere. Mature bush vines deeply rooted in limestone/granite soils gets a respectful treatment in the cellar with a little old and new wood. Intense blackberry flavours, chocolate and a lovely deep herbal complexity, and smooth polished texture, all refreshed by with vivid acidity. Widely recognized as a standard-bearer for Cabernet Franc. Must drink with some deeply charred meat.
