“A lavish wine” – 2017 Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc

Author: Mike Bennie
Source: The Wine Front
Review Date: May 2021

Lots going on here. Huge perfume of ripe plum, sage, violets, pot pourri, cedar. The palate is plush, jubey, lush, soft, lots of ripe fruit, a lick of minty green herbs, some rose hip tea and a late wash of feathery tannins and malt. Bold mouthful, lots of excitement, plenty of grunt and yet balance and class.
