Painted Rock, Cabernet Franc 2013
A delicious, bristling example of Cabernet Franc – the inaugural release – showing lively acidity allied to a concentrated, complex palate of mulberries, pomegranate, pencil lead and bay leaf. The tannins are inky and grippy, from 18 months in French oak (30% new). Also try the flagship Red Icon 2013.
