Craggy Range Sophia 2016

Deep darkest red. Aromatically complex with notes of ripe dark plum, violets, an autumnal forest and a touch of smoke. The wine exhibits great focus and intensity with fine tannins layered through a core of dark fruit. The wine carries a real seriousness that underlies its youthful charm.

Why we like it…

Elegant with excellent structure – a top Bordeaux Blend from a producer that never disappoints

Accolades…

A delightfully perfumed expression, with the Cabernet Franc portion bringing violet and graphite top notes to Merlot’s plummy base; the integrated oak reminiscent of festive spices. A mid-weight style with lots of sinew and abundant but supple tannins. This bottle was a little tense and needs time to relax, so there’s no rush to drink. Decant.
