Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
On the nose, this complex wine is very aromatic with notes of blackberries and blueberries, white pepper, and rose petals. The soft, light tannins in this smooth, fruit-forward wine offer a beautiful mouthfeel with flavours of blackberries and raspberries, and a very long finish.
Winemaker Notes
This wine was made predominantly with estate-grown grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard in Lillooet. Half of the grapes were whole cluster fermented and half were destemmed. Called partial carbonic maceration, this winemaking technique resulted in a wine that is very fruit-forward. It went through spontaneous fermentation for 9 days. This wine was aged in French and American oak barrels, and then further aged in bottles in our cellar before release.
Food Pairing Notes
A touch of acidity in this wine makes it a very food-friendly wine. Pair this elegant Cabernet Franc with barbequed steak, lasagna, lamb kabobs with lemon garlic potatoes, or a portobello mushroom burger.
