Mayhem Cabernet Franc

Mayhem Cabernet Franc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe grapes come from the Munson Mountain area of the Naramata Bench. It's wild fermented in stainless steel and aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 50 percent new and 50 percent neutral. The style is fresh and red-fruited with savoury undercurrents and bright acidity. The attack is plummy, leafy, and dry before finishing a bit tart. There is not a lot of the fun Mayhem style here, and it's accentuated by a hefty price.Tasted: 17 July 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.44 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
