Raats Cabernet Franc Stellenbosch 2008
This sexy, über-elegant Cabernet Franc shows the stunning heights this grape can attain! It combines a core of luscious blackberry, black cherry, and plum with expressive notes of licorice, tobacco, coffee, and spice. Silky tannins caress the palate, and hints of dark chocolate, mineral, and smoke come through on the long, supple finish.
Smoky herb nose-- reminiscent of jalapeno. Not as tannic as a cab, nice dark color, interesting drinking.

Very Bordelaise in style this complex Cabernet Franc is herbal, with a bright nose full of green capsicum, cedar, tobacco and dark berries.
