Catena Zapata DV Catena cabernet franc Historic Red (San Carlos) 2018
The nose is as you'd expect from a cab franc with mint and black fruits but with the added South American twist of eucalyptus and a hint of bell peppers. The palate is gorgeous - long, elegant, dried back fruits and a hint of allspice. Fine tannins with the strong acidic grip of youth. Will age well - if you can keep your hands off it!
Drink now - 2030.
