Critic's Rating 91 pts

WINE PROFILE: Nuances will unfold in time although a pleasure to drink now. Showing the masculine side to a very feminine variety. Dark black plums with black berry fruit, a smoky note with rich mocha and classic cabernet franc herbal aromatics. Juicy red fruit dance with excellent structure and our hallmark mouth-watering freshness. 

WINEMAKING: Certified Cabernet Franc from Sekhon’s Organic Vineyard was destemmed to open top stainless steel fermenters and then aged in concrete, the wine was spontaneously fermented with native yeasts and malolactic. After 11 months the wine was settled naturally and bottled mid-August 2020.

Harvested from silt and glacial rock and gravel soils in Kaleden, Skaha Lake near Penticton), the organic Cabernet Franc grapes were destemmed and fermented in clay amphorae and large oak vessels. After 8-months on skins the parts were pressed off and blended before being placed in concrete to settle.

White pepper, red cherry and red current aromas are muddled with faint notes of cocoa, cedar, tobacco, wet stone and a splash of mint. Like the nose, the palate shows purity; expressive red fruit is the game here. Medium-bodied and buoyant, balanced and transparent. An approachable wine with seamless tannins.
