Gold Hill Cabernet Franc

Gold Hill Cabernet Franc 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a high octane cabernet franc that shows concentrated, jammy fruit with pungent dried herbs. The extended hang time seems to have concentrated some of the green characters, suggesting some raisining on the vine (similar to an appassimento-style wine). The fruit intensity allows the wine to carry the oak, with the high alcohol easily giving the palate a suave, glycerous character. It's a love it or hate it style, and arguably few do it better than Gold Hill in the Okanagan.Tasted: 06 December 2020Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 34.99 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Gold Hill WineryDistributors: Empson Wines Canada
