2015 Carmelo Patti Cabernet Franc (750ml)

Cabernet Franc from Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina


Patti didn't like the behavior of the variety in 2014, so he jumped to the 2015 Cabernet Franc. It shows some ripe and still primary aromas, quite fruit-driven, with more fruit notes than varietal aromas. The palate is light to medium-bodied, although these wines usually seem to put on some weight with time in bottle and show deceptively light and straightforward when young. I'd keep this for a couple more years in bottle. However, 2015 is certainly a riper year than 2013, the last vintage I tasted, but it still has quite noticeable acidity. 10,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2016.
