92 points | James Suckling – 2017 Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc

Author: James Suckling
Source: James Suckling
Review Date: May 2019

There’s a fresh core of red fruit here with some riper, plum-compote notes and plenty of sweet oak spice. The palate has a smooth array of deep-set dark berries with red plum-pip notes at the finish. A blend of 69% merlot and 31% cabernet franc. Drink or hold.
