Always love a solid bottle of Raats Cabernet Franc. Deep crimson red. Lots of bell peppers and light red fruits. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied with some greenery and berries. Long and dry finish. Drink till 2028.

This tasty wine is big, savory, peppery w/ lingering ripe black cherry & black raspberry flavors. Great example of a balanced & high quality #cabfranc #stellenbosch #capesomm @WOSA USA

Fantastic bouquet. Fresh cut grass with a hint of pepper notes. Who knew South Africa can produce good Cab Franc!
