2006 David Franz “POP 2.5” Northern Barossa Stockwell Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.9%

  I have a confession. I love Barossa Cabernet and feel that it is quite often overlooked. Add to that one of the most intriguingly designed labels on the market and it makes for a satisfying experience. Brambly, sweet dark

2009 David Franz “Howling Dogue” Grenache Shiraz. Barossa. 15.5%

Only 192 bottles made. On first pouring, it looks like it could be a Pinot Noir. Looks like it could be a light, elegant wine…. But don’t let that fool you. First whiff reveals a very heady aroma. Cherries… dried

2005 David Franz “Georgie’s Walk” Cabernet Sauvignon. Western Barossa. 13.5%

Ahhh, the wines of David Franz, pretty much my favorite winery. I have tried most of his wines, and love most. Drinking perfectly and great match for roast lamb. Black currant, black olives and hints of beet root, soy, dark
