Another addition to the range, Ramey's 2012 Cabernet Franc is fabulous. Super-expressive aromatics, mocha, black cherries, plums, smoke and incense blossom in a wine of true pedigree and class. A wine of pure nuance and delineation, the 2012 Cabernet Franc stands out for its exceptional balance, class and Oakville pedigree. This is a striking wine by any measure. Sadly, there is no 2013, as yields were small and the Franc was used in the other blends.

A brilliant offering, the 2012 Cabernet Franc Oakville offers lots of forest floor, acacia flowers, cedarwood and blue as well as black fruits, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Drink now-2025.
