Here is a real flatterer! Lawrence Buhler has produced a solid Cabernet Franc from the difficult red vintage of 2008. Wonderfully elegant, the perfume is a mélange of raspberries, cassis, cocoa, coffee and sweet tobacco, and is built on a medium-bodied frame. In the mouth, there is a sweet core of fruit, soft tannins, and it provides a long finish. It is ready to drink with your favourite cut of steak or lamb chops, marinated in garlic and Greek oregano.
