Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc 1999

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFragrant spicy ripe cherries with a background of black olives and sweaty leather. Big entry and finally some flavour extract but the finish is dry and tannic. It will need a big steak to tame its peppery tobacco cherry flavours.Tasted: 21 February 2003Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 24.90 Winery Producer: Poplar Grove WineryDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
