Bartier Bros. Cabernet Franc Cerqueira Vineyard 2018

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSeven months down the road, 2018 is coming into its own, showing that Bartier finesse that makes it almost approachable at release. The fruit comes off the Black Sage Terrace home site, Cerqueira Vineyard. Bartier mixes in ten percent merlot to add roundness and supple notes to this juicy red. Savoury black plums and dry, leafy flavours mark the palate. It's native fermented on skins for a day, and aged one year in French oak barrels. Will be best in three or four years, but drink now with grilled beef.Tasted: 13 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.99 BCLS AB 21.99 private wine shops Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Winery Direct
