Wines of Merritt Cabernet Franc 2018
94 Points

Only 25 dozen made, and sold out. But on the off chance you bought some, I’m happy to cater for minority groups.

Cabernet Franc, when grown and made properly, can be such a wonderful grape. Black fruit, violet, sweet grass and bay leaf, five spice and cocoa. Medium-bodied, brambly and perfumed, fleshy and supple, red and black fruit, nougat and dried herb, freshness with weight. Finish is long and sweet and savoury too. Beauty.
