The steeped red and black currant fruit is lined with smoldering charcoal, pepper and tobacco leaf notes. Singed cedar details grace the finish, adding texture and length. Shows good range and textbook varietal character. Drink now through 2015. 280 cases imported.-JM

The 2011 Raats Family Cabernet Franc comes from two parcels of 20+-year-old vines and sees 16 to 18 months in new and used oak. It has a very composed bouquet with dark cherry, raspberry, undergrowth and leather that grows in intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry. The tannins are very fine and frame crisp red and black fruit that segue into a gently fiery finish. This is very well-crafted. Drink now-2018.

Food pairing
Pork Loin with plum and Armagnac sauce. Beef Fillet with Truffle sauce. Game bird with red wine sauce. Any Springbok, Ostrich or Kudu.
