Sourced from some of our favorite vineyards near Osoyoos, this Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend is one of our “go-to” reds. Easy drinking tannins frame the rich berry and cocoa notes on the palate.
Tasting Notes: A rich, but medium bodied red wine that is made to drink immediately and over the next 5 years. Look for notes of black cherry, blackberry, and plum with hints of wild sage, earth notes, and a spicy finish.
Food Pairings: Serve with red meat dishes and Italian fare such as pizzas and pasta with tomato sauce.
