Wine of the Week AU

Frankland Estate Olmo’s Reward 2015, Frankland River, AUD $85

This is an impressive, full-bodied wine that presents its 72% cabernet franc in a serious light, with some help from cabernet sauvignon and malbec. It’s firm, tight, full-bodied and concentrated, with lovely balance and elegance. There are raspberry, red cherry and tomato bush aromas. (Screwcap)
