On the nose, this food-friendly wine has aromas of bacon, roasted red peppers, black tea, and a pleasant hint of mint. The fine tannin structure in this wine offers a beautiful mouthfeel with intense flavours of black currants and blackberries, with spicy black tea notes.
The majority of the Cabernet Franc was made with estate-grown grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard in Lillooet. The remainder came from a vineyard just south of Oliver in the South Okanagan. The Cabernet Franc from Dry Creek Vineyard was picked on October 24, 2017. After maceration, the grapes were fermented and pressed before being cellared in French and American oak barrels. After aging in barrels for 9 months, the wine was bottled and aged another 12 months in our cellars before release.
Food Pairing Notes
This versatile Cabernet Franc will beautifully complement lamb, duck, pork, mussels, grilled eggplant, or lasagna with tomato sauce and rosemary.
This wine is ready to drink now, or it can be cellared for 5-7 years.
