Fort Berens Cabernet Franc

Fort Berens Cabernet Franc 2018

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaThere's a lot going on in this dusky, ripe cab franc, with grapes partially from their Lillooet estate's Dry Creek Vineyard, and the rest from elsewhere in BC. Partial whole cluster, this was native fermented prior to aging in French and American barrels. Ripe plum, blackberry jam, mulberries and ample toasty spice fill a suave palate, with soft tannins hugging the silky fruit to a musk perfumed finish. As mentioned, there's a lot going on here, and a little bit too much. Crack and drink now with grilled burgers or kabobs.Tasted: 29 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.99 winery direct Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
