Wildekrans Wine Estate Cabernet Franc - Merlot 2005

Wildekrans is one of my favorite producers in South Africa, and this bottling is a great example of what makes it such a standout. The nose shows beautifully delineated bell peppers, cigar tobacco, crisp black plums, and spice. Those aromas are echoed on the palate, and lead the way to a finish rich in spicy blackberries and raspberries. This is that rare wine that's both delicious on its own and perfect at the table, its ripe, tongue-coating tannins and undeniably refreshing character utterly irresistible in either context.
