Updated Spring 2021:
This is a lighter style Cabernet Franc. It is very red berry driven, especially raspberry, and lots of tannin present. There is good potential for further ageing.
Tasting notes at the time of release:
Our 2014 Cabernet Franc is made primarily with grapes from our Lillooet vineyard. It has aromas of blackberry, black currant and blueberry, with roasted red pepper notes on the finish. Serve this tonight with a steak or pasta with a tangy tomato sauce or cellar it until 2022 or beyond.
This Cabernet Franc was made from grapes grown in Lillooet (75%) and the Okanagan. Bringing these two terroirs together created a wine with exceptional depth. At press wines were separated into individual barrels corresponding with their stage during the press cycle. This vinification technique gave us a wide variety of blending fractions and small lots from which to choose to make our flagship wine.
