SOLD OUT 2016 Howell Hawke's Bay Cabernet Franc 6-pack

Regular Price $90.00

Sorry, we are sold out! But if you like this wine, you should try the new 2018 Cabernet Franc from Smith & Sheth from our family of wines. It's sourced from the same vineyard as our 2016 Cab Franc!

Immediately engaging: crushed berry, smoke, and a compelling cured meat/ fresh leather note; also a spicy, bright, dried herb character, like Indian bay or curry leaf.

Fresh, full, firm, with succulent berry fruit, but implosive structure. Neither vague nor sweet. Long, staunch finish, with alternating tranches of fruit, spice, and tannin. Something soothing but stalwart here, surprising in a year elsewhere prone to superficiality or glibness: testimony to talented growers working a gifted site.
