Phantom Creek Estates Kobau Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2019

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaYear two of the Kobau Vineyard Cabernet Franc grown on the Golden Mile bench is a much better version than year one. It still has that south Okanagan version of garrigue, but it is much better integrated into a wine with more pure black plums, black cherries, and savoury sagebrush/dried herbs with a hint of chocolate leading the way. There is some dense young tannins yet to be dispersed, but this sleeper will keep through 2025.Tasted: 19 February 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
