Van Westen Vineyards Vulture 2013

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNaramata cabernet franc is mostly a perfect match. Like last year, the nose is floral with a mix of red and black fruits, from red currants to red cherries and huckleberry and just a hint of volatility. The palate textures are round and soft with dense, soft fleshy tannins and plummy, peppery fruit flecked with bits of cumin. Perfect with roasted meats, mushroom dishes and game.Tasted: 12 October 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
