Church and State Signature Cabernet Franc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2017 franc is a mix of three vineyard sites: Foundation, Bella, and Coyote Bowl in the south Okanagan. This youthful cab franc opens with ripe black cherry, and a wealth of rich tannins mixed with savoury black pepper. The back end is fresh and floral, helping to balance the picture. This will need five to seven years in the bottle to find its feet, but it should be a good one down the road. If you need to drink now, steak is the best option to tackle the youthful tannins.Tasted: 12 August 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 31.99 winery online/direct Producer: Church & State WineryDistributors: Empson Wines Canada
