Howard Vineyard ‘Amos’ Cabernet Franc 2009(Adelaide Hills, SA)
14.8%, Screwcap, $60
I like the black jelly bean, concentrated red berry Franc flavours flavours in here, which promises much for future vintages (2010 could be great, for example). This 2009 vintage iteration, however, ultimately tastes a little too heady and unbalanced to be enjoyable.
Score: 16/20, 87/100
Would I buy it? No.
