Cloof - Lynchpin

The overall impression is gorgeous, with all the taut elegance to be expected from Cabernet Franc, the tart richness of Merlot, and the take-no-prisoners power of Cabernet Sauvignon. Barrel maturation took place in French Oak, of which about 75% was new, giving the wine a very classic (well-balanced) tannin structure. The aftertaste lingers for a good while, ending in a lip-smacking, appetite-inducing freshness.

We believe that Cabernet Franc plays the critically important role in this blend. It is therefore the lynchpin, hence the name of the wine.
