This 2017 Pierro LTCF is a classic ‘Bordeaux blend’ of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, delivering a Margaret River red wine of impeccable quality, with rich, concentrated varietal flavours and high quality fine-grained tannins.
93 – Erin Larkin, The Wine Companion
“… This is creamy, fine-boned cabernet with a cavalcade of spicy forest berries and herbs. The cabernet franc has a crunchy edge to its mulberry expression, the other varieties come together to leave a slightly warm impression in the mouth of spicy red creaming soda and salted licorice. $46. 14% alc. Screw cap. Drink by 2030.”
“It’s cabernet merlot with a little cabernet franc – hence the name LTCf. It’s medium bodied, with an effortless palate structure and focus to a long finish. Perfumed notes of black olive and red berry. The palate has a tight sinewy thread and fine-grained oak in support. It all comes together with firm chalky tannins and silky-smooth oak integration. Focused and long. It’s a wine that will continue to evolve.”
