Wolffer Estate Cabernet Franc Caya 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Cabernet Franc "Caya" (Caya being a horse from the winery's stables) also has 18% Merlot blended in. It was aged in a mixture of used (60%) and new French oak (40%) for 18 months. The tank-fermented Merlot was blended in separately in October, 2013, roughly a year after harvest. It comes in a 13.5% alcohol. Very different in demeanor than the graceful and more mature 2005, also reviewed this issue, this youthful 2012 is otherwise in a similar style, with impeccable balance, an elegant mid-palate, sensual texture and grip on the finish. It looks like another success in this bottling." -Robert Parker, Wine Advocate *(90 Points)*
