River Stone Cabernet Franc 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe ’14 was good, but this might be better,Only tine will tell. This year the ripe black plum, cassis and wild blueberry fruit is balanced by a savoury, leafy, resiny undercurrent. The tannins are still sticky but slightly finer grained. The oak is supporting the long, black licorice notes to mark the finish. Give this a year or two to come together or serve it now with grilled beef.Tasted: 16 August 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
