Township 7 Benchmark Series Cabernet Franc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis cabernet franc may come from the sun-soaked Raju Vineyard in Osoyoos, but it reflects the moderate 2018 growing season. There's an appealing freshness to the fruit, with ripe dark cherry and black raspberry that's been softened by 24 months in barrel. That's bolstered by a satisfying mintiness and smokey, char character. Medium-full bodied, it's suave and polished, with the juiciness you'd expect from the vintage. Ready to drink now, but this will hold over the next 3-4 years.Tasted: 28 June 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 33.97 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Township 7 Vineyards and WineriesDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
