Free Form Cabernet Franc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom an organic vineyard in Kaleden, this cabernet franc was wild fermented and aged in a combination of clay amphorae and large oak vessels. Quite smoky and lifted out of the gate, there’s also some tobacco and dried herbs, but not a lot of fruit. The dense, grippy tannins dominant the palate at this point, no doubt a partial result of aging on its skins for eight months. It’s an interesting pour, but one that certainly needs a hearty protein at the dinner table.
