Poplar Grove Cabernet Franc 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAlready garnet orange in hue, this forward, fat, cabernet franc with lifted fruit appears to be ageing quickly. It was a super hot year, not always complementary to wines that walk the hedonistic line. Lifted dark, baked fruit flavours and a spicy sheen of oak combine to take this down the palate to a firm, medium long finish marked with dark chocolate, and short, drying tannins. The blend is 90/10 cabernet franc and malbec. Ready to drink now with grilled beef.Tasted: 24 January 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
