Gold Hill Cabernet Franc 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a giant red, even now 5 years on, with gobs of blackberry jam, black cherry, plum compote on the full palate. Streaks of oxidation show its age, and the over-ripeness of the fruit. Tannins are still ample and somewhat gritty, drawing this to a warming, brown spiced finish. Tasting a bit tired, and best poured alongside hearty pork, beef or mushroom stews.Tasted: 26 August 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 34.99 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Gold Hill WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
