Church & State Wines Cabernet Franc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWe're tasting this with the benefit of another year in bottle, and the wine's all the better for it. Some tertiary character is starting to emerge and the tannins are beginning to relent and soften. The dark berry fruit is still ripe and opulent, complemented by lifted aromatics of dried florals and herbs, pepper, and cedar. Fans of bold cabernet franc will find a lot to like here, and it's likely still 2-3 years from peak. Sourced from three Oliver-based vineyards: Foundation, Bella and Coyote Bell.Tasted: 27 June 2021Tasted by: Prices:
