Orofino Vineyards Cabernet Franc Rosè Pozza Vineyard 2018

Cawston, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis medium-pale peach rosé was from a small block of cabernet franc in the sloping Pozza Vineyard, a cooler, higher altitude site in Similkameen's Olalla Gap, surrounded by desert scrub. Strawberry, light cherry, raspberry blossom, and desert herbs scratch the sides of this medium-bodied rosé, one with a lactic leesiness coating the palate. Tasting a bit tired, this far along; looking forward to the next crisp vintage.Tasted: 01 March 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.90 winery direct, private wine shops BC 38.90 1500 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Orofino VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
