2007 Frankland Estate “Olmo’s Reward”. Frankland River Region, WA. 14%

Frankland Estate “Olmo’s Reward” 2

A blend of 46% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and 9% Malbec

A good mid to full bodied wine.

Juicy plums, tempered with dark chocolates and hazelnuts. Some rose petal perfume. Strong mint with chinotto and tobacco influences in the background.

A real bitter sweet finish, which will lend itself nicely to food.

With air, the choc & mints really comes out and fruits appear riper and are more evident.

All in all, a good wine. Say 93 Points.

Tasted 11th April 2013

Purchased 2 years ago from Dan Murphy’s for $36

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.


  1. Reblogged this on Oenophilogical and commented:
    I read this great post over at Perth Wine Enthusiast and wanted to share it. This sounds like an amazing red blend – one that I’d be more than willing to splurge on (beyond my normal “cheap wine” budget). It isn’t extremely expensive, though. By the way — WA is Western Australia.
