Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc 2009

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIf syrah is nudging its way on to the main stage cabernet franc is far behind and one of the valley leaders is the Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc 2009 $35. Cabernet franc thrives in cooler climates in part because the vine gets underway early in the spring but it comes with a different style red, floral fruit with a dusting of dried herbs and spice. The tannins are supple, the texture amazingly round for such a young wine that has a full life ahead of it.Tasted: 08 October 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
