Therianthropy The Negotiant Cabernet Franc 2020

Lincoln Lakeshore, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaFrom the organically farmed Redfoot Vineyard, in Lincoln Lakeshore, this cabernet franc is rooted in the region's rich red clays, planted 18 years ago. It was native fermented 75% whole cluster over 3 weeks, before resting in Bourgogne concrete eggs for 7 months, and bottled without fining or filtration. Luring purple florals, cassis, savoury herbal branchiness, and wild blackberry flood this juicy, fruity, youthful and carbonic-forward red. Tannins are downy and sticky, and acidity is crunchy, propelling this to a softly floral, amply saline finish. Easy, harmonious, fun franc for enjoying now, with a light chill.Tasted: 10 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 34.00 consignment Producer: TherianthropyDistributors: The Living Vine
