Tinhorn Creek Cabernet Franc 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe heat of the southern Okanagan sun is felt in this ripe, round and cedar-hewn cabernet franc. Dark chocolate cocoa, mocha and menthol colour this potent, lush red, based on kirsch cherry and sourced from 18 year old vines in Diamondback Vineyard on Black Sage Bench. The long extraction is felt here, as well as the mix of 14-18 months spent in French, American and Hungarian oak. A bit clunky at the moment though would be well suited to ribs.Tasted: 10 November 2016Tasted by: Prices:
