53% Cabernet Franc, 36% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot

The Red Jasper is one of the oldest gemstones and also embodied the name of their beloved Father, Jasper Raats Sr., who was one of the founders and viticulturists of Raats Family Wines. This wine is an ode to him and celebrates his life and the passion he had for cultivating quality Cabernet Franc. The Red Jasper gemstone brings hidden feelings to the surface, creates harmony and offers new perspective, just like their father did.

Tasting notes:
'53% Cabernet Franc, 36% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Matured for 16 months in French oak, none new. Red and black berries, some attractive herbal character and pencil shavings on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with a lovely energy about it – good fruit definition, fresh acidity and fine tannins.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report 2019, 93/100

'Exceptionally intense and complex on the nose with blackberry, black cherry and bramble in abundance and subtle hints of forest floor, dark chocolate, aniseed and spicy tobacco. The walk in the Black Forest continues with blue and blackberry dancing on a tight rope with focus and concentration, following through onto a perfectly balanced, fine-grained, velvety palate. The finish lingers with hints of fresh mint, cinnamon and perfume. Complex and structured.' – Winemaker
