River Stone Cabernet Franc 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSweet black plum, dried cassis and wild blueberries fill this fleshy, full red. The attack is full-bodied with sticky tannins and a whack of warm black licorice that supports a ripe, juicy, fruity red framed with fourteen months of French oak. The finish is long and warm flecked with perfumed wild desert herbs and thorns while dark cocoa lingers on the warm finish. Great potential for short term cellaring but you could drink this now with your favourite steak.Tasted: 01 September 2016Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices:
