Wine of the Week – Raats Family Cabernet Franc 2012

Bruwer Raats’ passion for winemaking shines in this complex and elegant Cabernet Franc, which gives new significance to predictions by many in the wine world last year that this varietal will outpace Cabernet Sauvignon this year.

With rich fruit, complexity, good tannins and minerality, this is a wine that will quickly make you a fan. Detect notes of black raspberry, dark chocolate, herbs, licorice and more. The wine is 13.5% ABV. Last spring winemakers from all over South Africa came together in a celebration of the increasingly popular varietal.

Make it your choice for an exciting new red this winter in the new year! Go to
