Cabernet Franc, 2018

Shipped and sold by Gold Hill Winery

2018 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 14.1% ALC/VOL
Cabernet Franc

The resulting wine has abundant notes of floral violet, sage, vanilla, blackberry. On the palate, this medium-bodied juicy red, has flavours of raspberry, lambert cherry, and java followed by a lengthy finish of soft, fine tannins, tobacco leaf and mellow acidity. With the warmer than normal year, this Cabernet Franc is definitely a richer, bigger, bolder expression of our normal Cabernet Franc.

Gold Hill Cabernet Franc is ideal to pair with food: grilled duck, game, beef or lamb, eggplant, roast tomatoes or roast vegetables, and creamy soft cheeses which pair well with the soft tannins.
