Van Westen Vineyards Vulture 2016

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLook for an open, savoury, ripe, inviting cabernet franc - BC style. The attack is a melange of black fruit, vanilla, toasted oak, bright acidity, and satiny textures with a twist of stony minerality. The savoury thread and brightness is the key to this wine’s attractive nature and gives it an edge on its California competitors. The Naramata Bench continues to impress with its balance of fruit, acidity, warmth, and coolness. A highly lauded wine at the 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada.Tasted: 04 October 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
