Lock and Worth Cabernet Franc Rosé 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPink grapefruit and fresh rhubarb fills the plucky, youthful palate of Lock & Worth's cabernet franc rosé, always one of my highlight wines of summer. This year's version is crunchy when tasted upon release, with bright, brisk cranberry, pomegranate, lemon verbena and lime peel on a shining, joyous, juicy palate. Orange zest shines on the salted, lingering, campari-esque finish. Slender and energetic, this low-interventionist wine was planted 2008 on the Naramata Bench .... . No fining or filtration was employed, and the resultant cloudiness / sediment in the bottom of the bottle is testament to their hands-off approach. Bigger and fruitier than last vintage, this is a joy to drink, and will be consumed liberally this summer at the Trevehouse.Tasted: 26 April 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
