Da Silva Cabernet Franc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Oliver's Avila Family Vineyard, and its clay loam soils, this cabernet franc was aged for 36 months in a split of French and American oak, both with medium+ toast. The wood is upfront and dominant, with bacon fat, ripe cassis, baked blackberries on a dense, thick palate, seasoned with ample baking spices and camp smoke. Tannins are somewhat ragged, giving you more to chew through up to the warming finish. Not a shy wine, this requires fire grilled meats to match.Tasted: 26 August 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 40.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Da Silva Vineyards and WineryDistributors: BCWineshop
