Wine of the Week AU

Clandestine Vineyards No. 3 Cabernet Franc 2017, Margaret River, AUD $40

A fragrant, vibrant, varietal cabernet franc with commendable fruit energy and excellent mid-palate concentration. Good palate tension and dark berry intensity. The tannins are sculptural and appropriate, and the oak is a mere shadow. (Screwcap)
