2021 Block 1 Cabernet FrancMatthew Atallah Wines
“The Socialist Red”
So named for the many volunteers who helped me with this wine and its production after I injured myself.
This lovely medium bodied red wine was inspired by my love of the Cabernet Franc wines from the Loire Valley, particularly those of the Saumur region. The wine is bright and vibrant, with a nose of lifted red fruits and spice. Cassis and silky-smooth tannins abound on the palate, with balanced oak, a plush mid palate and lingering finish.
While you will be rewarded by cellaring up to 5 years, I love this wine for its youthful vibrancy and exuberance. Moreish and delicious you will not be disappointed. Decanting a must.
