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.

Made from 79% estate grown Cabernet Franc. 21% of the fruit was sourced from the Similkameen valley. Our Cabernet Franc is a blend of clones 327 & 214. These two clones were co-fermented. Co-fermentation is the vinification practice of blending two grape batches prior to inducing fermentation. This method ensures that the aromatic/phenolic intensity of both clones are expressed equally (relative to their ratio). After fermentation the “raw wine” was aged in French oak & American oak barrels. The French oak imparts bouquets of vanilla-bean & coconut, while the American oak contributes the coffee & toasty notes.
