2016 Cabernet Franc Collector's Series
One of the Bordeaux reds who thrives in the cool climate of the Okanagan Valley. With its versatility and adaptability to our terroir Cabernet Franc has the structure to age gracefully but also got the fresh black fruit and blackberries to be enjoyed young. We believe that Cabernet Franc could be a signature red in Canada.
2016 CABERNET FRANC is about, balance, structure, character. This classy wine has intense aromas of black currant, raspberry jam, spice and hints of cedar and vanilla. Smooth silky tannins with long lingering blackberry and cocoa notes. A long velvety finish completes this elegant wine which is drinking very well young and will continue to improve with careful cellaring for 5 to 10 years. Cellar conditions required.
