Bench 1775 Cabernet Franc Malbec 2015

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis stelvin-capped red is quite reductive upon opening, but airtime in glass or a splash decant will help blow that off, revealing brooding blue / black fruits led by damson plums, blueberries, ripe blackberries and aromas of spearmint, violets and cracked pepper. Tannins are downy soft and acidity is moderate, rafting this medium bodied wine to a snappy finish. This comes from Oxbow Vineyard, in Osoyoos. A characterful, if peculiar blend that works for lentils / winter squash / beef / mushrooms.Tasted: 13 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct Producer: Bench 1775 WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
