Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc 1997

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaGood color. Earthy leafy cassis oak coffee character and some spearmint too. Quite a rich nose. Good flavour intensity, lots of blackcurrant one of the ripest reds we have in 1997. Lean but balanced. Fine effort. Keep for a year or two.Tasted: 01 May 2000Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
