Culmina Cabernet Franc

Culmina Cabernet Franc 2016

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Arise Bench, on the Golden Mile Bench, this intense red was fermented and aged in French oak (22% new) for 16 months. Savoury throughout, with graphite, cedar stave, and toasted oak seasoning the brooding black cherry, bitter cassis, and ample lashings of cracked clove and nutmeg. Tannins are large and pretty polished, but still a bit ragged in youth, benefitting from decanting and a pouring alongside lamb or venison.Tasted: 27 September 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 38.00 wine club - Fellowship Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
