Fort Berens Cabernet Franc 2019

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaMedium-dark looks a bit like a new world pinot until you catch the nose. Lightly herbaceous, warm blueberries and black raspberries have a savoury dried herb underside. The texture is surprisingly supple with a youthful rustic edge that will disappear quickly. The fruit is mostly Lilloett estate grown, harvested late in the season at optimal ripeness. It was barrel aged for 15 months in a combination of seasoned French and American oak and then bottle aged for an additional six months before release. Anything mushroom works here.Tasted: 29 November 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.99 winery online/direct, select private retailers, grocery Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
