Description

Tasting Notes
The nose has blackberries and licorice up front, softens to yield stewed cherries and a touch of orange peel. Palate is surprisingly plush and soft for a young Cabernet. It has layers of red fruit and spice with typical Okanagan bright acidity that gives it plenty of life and length. Finish is persistent with a warm cherry and vanilla flavour and supple tannins.

Comment:

This bold, spicy Cabernet Franc is a treat! The wine spent 12-14 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak. Rich red fruit flavours, savoury green herbal notes of thyme and tarragon, and black pepper and baking spice notes abound. This wine is flexible enough to pair with almost anything, but will be a dream match with lamb dishes and pesto-based Italian food. Enjoy!
