When you try the Somos wines all you can think is 'Why the fuck aren't these everywhere?", because the winemakers are mean, that's why. Well I say that but I'm just sore to be honest, let me explain. Somos is a team up of Ben Caldwell & Mauricio Cantu down in McLaren Vale, Mauricio hails from Mexico and makes a point to make sure Central & South America get their fair share of his tasty drops, leaving us with our share that unfortunately could never be enough when it comes to these wines.
The Somos Cab Franc is nothing but an intelligently made wine, half of the fruit gets picked early to grab its vibrancy by the balls and the other half of the fruit gets a bit of a sleep in to allow it ripen up a bit and form a greater depth and richness. The two are then blended together to result in a wine that's balanced and kicks ass on all fronts, fresh and present.
