This wine has rich notes of cherries and blackberries. It has a fresh earthy scent, like a forest floor after a rainfall. It is a full-bodied wine rich with concentrated flavours of black and red berries with a smooth finish.
Made primarily with grapes from our estate vineyard in Lillooet, our Cabernet Franc is a full-bodied wine with intense fruit flavours. The deep red colour with concentrated flavours of cherries, raspberries and black currants makes this wine a match with a tomato pasta dish. It is ready to drink now or it will age beautifully for many years.
