Burrowing Owl Vineyards 2008 Cabernet Franc
Always a favourite of mine from Burrowing Owl, this cabernet franc is rife with spice and herb notes on the nose, bell pepper, cinnamon, graphite, mocha, cherry, blueberry and blackberry jam. Chocolatey and spicy in the mouth, with great fruit. Enjoy it now or over the next five or so years.
