Warwick Cabernet Franc 2008

The wine has a deep and intense garnet colour. The nose shows ripe berry, cassis and smoky flavours that are supported by almond and chocolate aromas. The palate is full, round with ripe smooth tannins and flavours like coffee, cherry and cigar box. The balanced acid creates a firm finish that is complemented by luscious and lingering sweetness.

Serve with rare roast of lamb, Lambs knuckles stewed with red onions, or a rich pork terrine.
