Synchromesh Cabernet Franc Turtle Rock Farms 2017

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom a single vineyard high up on Naramata Bench, on a granite and gravel base, this cabernet franc was whole cluster fermented before spending 22 months in French oak (50% new). The wine was then bottled without fining or filtration. The black cherry, blackberry, black raspberry that floods the deeper palate is threaded with espresso, tobacco, and dusty gravels. Acidity is lofted and bright, and tannins are ample, but well integrated into the pillow of fruit. The generosity of fruit is very well handled here, resulting in an elegant, fuller, floral expression of site and grape.Tasted: 12 August 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 50.00 winery direct Producer: Synchromesh Wines Inc.Distributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
