Church & State Coyote Bowl Series Cabernet Franc 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA new line of wines with various catchy / questionable labels, the Lost Inhibitions wines question wine packaging conventions and open conversation, presumably more so as the bottle is drunk. This ripe, round blend of merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot opens with perfumed dark florals, cassis, black plum, blackberry and ink. Violets lead the palate, where ripe cassis and plum notes return before ample black pepper on the finish. Approachable, soft and likeable, perfect for date night or blue cheese dressed burgers.Tasted: 07 August 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 winery direct, VQA shops Producer: Church & State WineryDistributors: Empson Wines Canada
