“Broody and densely packed” 95 points – Angus Hughson | Wine Pilot – Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc 2019

Author: Angus Hughson

This broody and densely packed 2019 Merlot Cabernet Franc is exceptional and offers up muscular aromas of meat stock, blackberry and graphite with a strong backbone of new French oak. That density continues on the palate with a firm tannic overall feel – a strong core of gravel, graphite and baked earth flavours tightly bound over an extremely long finish. A wine best left at least ten years to see its besty.

Don't miss out on the next vintage of Tapanappa Chardonnays again!
