Upper Bench Merlot Cabernet Franc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNot entirely up to 2016 in the voluptuous Napa style, 2018 is a juicier, more northern version with some tannins to shed. The nose and palate are awash in deep black cherry with spicy, savoury flecks throughout. The finish is medium-long with a few sticky tannins. Best now with burgers or steak, or let this sleep another 12-18 months in the bottle.Tasted: 19 July 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 20.00 winery online, grocery, VQA and select private retailers Producer: Upper Bench WineryDistributors: Seacove Group
