Duemani Cabernet Franc 2018 Duemani
I tasted this unbottled wine next to the 2017 vintage for comparison. Whereas the 2017 vintage now shows lots of clove, spice and some sharpness to the tannins, this Duemani 2018 Cabernet Franc Duemani is a more direct, streamlined and vertical wine. The bouquet offers buoyant aromas of dark fruit, spice, tar and licorice. There is a lot of intensity and energy surrounding those pretty aromas. The mouthfeel takes a more delicate approach without the astringency and power that we got in the previous vintage. This wine is almost fragile in comparison, benefiting from a long and elegant finish.

Lots of blackberry and fresh-herb aromas, as well as wet earth. Some green peppercorns. Full-bodied, yet polished and in check. Lovely, ripe tannins. Licorice aftertaste. Serious.
