    Default The 12 Wines of Xmas VII

    1996 CABERNET FRANC
    Chateau Xanadu
    Margaret River



    $50.00 (15 years ago)


    Clear, bright colour no sign of age

    Nose: Restrained earthy fruit

    Palate: Creamy finish on back

    24 Hours later

    Very tight wine well put together.

    Vibrant fruit now showing through, still quite young and fresh finishing with a creamy texture and pleasing fruit acid.

    The wine is 16 years old and shows no great sign of age.

    I would liked to have given the wine a further 24 hours to open up even more and see what it had to show, but I drank it all.
