Somek Winery Cabernet Franc 2009 Israel

image

My Rating 92 Points.
Price $25.

Dark ruby / brown in color with a brick hue. Dirty looking, in a good way.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, blueberries, figs, plums, cherries, oak, licorice, dust, green pepper, smoke, eucalyptus and black pepper.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, vanilla, oak, licorice, mint chocolate, some green vegetables and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and great looking legs.

Long finish with full tannins and spices.

This awesome, 7 year old, is drinking very well right now, probably at its peak. Nice and balanced and very enjoyable by itself or with food.

Aged for 24 months in French oak barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.
