Lakeside Cellars Cabernet Franc 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPersian carpet-magenta coloured with a pretty nose of cassis, dark plum and violet candies. The pencil lead and dried herbs of classic varietal cabernet franc are nicely displayed in this Golden Mile wine. Sweet, ripe, dark fruit flavours with are heavily coated with mocha oak notes and uplifted by fresh Okanagan acidity; two years in oak barrels shows on the highly toasted, savoury finish. Solid effort that showcases well-ripened fruit, balanced by the savouryness that one hopes for in cabernet franc.Tasted: 31 October 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.00 winery direct Producer: Lakeside CellarsDistributors: Winery Direct
