Two Sisters 2013 Cabernet Franc

A lot has been said (not sure about written) about the pricing of the wines at Two Sisters … they are getting the reputation of being a very pricy producer, but they are also getting noted for making some pretty damn good wines – thanks greatly to their talented winemaker, Adam Pearce … this 2013 started off beautifully on the nose with lots of tobacco leaf and cigar box which follows onto the palate and adds black raspberry and cassis fruit into the mix. There’s also some woodsy notes within, which is not surprising when you consider the wine spent 24 months in oak (15% new) – I’m impressed that in such a cool vintage the winemaker was able to coax great flavours and practically ridding the wine of so much of the savoury elements that can affect a cooler vintage wine; and what’s more there’s some real elegance here and textbook character without showing too much of the “greenness” that can also be a problem in these types of vintages.  Price: $48.00 – Rating: ****+
