Fort Berens Cabernet Franc Reserve 2016

British Columbia, CanadaThe cork finished, reserve tier of cabernet franc is 70 percent Lillooet estate vineyard mixed into 30 percent Blind Creek Vineyard fruit from the Similkameen Valley. This is a barrel selection (American and French), with an attack full-bodied with pure black cherry that runs long into a strawberry jam mid-palate all laced with a savoury desert sage dust. The tannins are richer than in the regular version, suggesting a bit more bottle age or a medium rare beef tenderloin. A good start.Tasted: 16 November 2018Tasted by: Prices:
