Frankland Estate Olmo's Reward Red Blend 2017

93 POINTS: Wine Enthusiast

Deep crimson red with purple hues. Entwines hints of vanilla, plum, currants and cherry. Fresh and bright, a delicate palate to start showing freshness and bright sweet fruit, red-berries, plum and lifted floral notes. The tightly woven palate has fine grained gravely tannins, slight mocha and savoury earthy notes. The palate is flavoursome and persistent. A very refined, beautifully balanced and effortlessly elegant wine with the structure and fruit intensity to richly reward further cellaring.

"This Cab Franc-dominant Bordeaux blend from Western Australia's chilly deep south opens with distinctive notes of plump red fruit, cedar, dried thyme, violets and black olive, with a sanguine and warm stone vibe. The palate is full but fresh, with a lift of fresh fruit and oodles of savory herbs on the finish. Tannins are nicely textured but a bit drying, giving austerity to the wine, especially alongside the noticeable oak influence and some alcohol heat. But paired with a roast lamb, this should be a lovely, expressive drop."
