Hillside Heritage Series Cabernet Franc 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Hillside Heriate Series Cabernet Franc has it all together in 2018, beginning with a knockout bouquet that feints franc, St. Emilion, and Naramata in a manner that is almost disarming. Elegance and power are a lovely combination, and this wine has it in spades. Look for a mix of cherries, black raspberries, and the perfect tension of tannins and acidity that seem to assimilate each other in the finish. This is a winner: elegant, graceful, charming and ready to drink. The fruit comes off Cinwick Vineyard below the Naramata Road, on the heavier lacustrine soils. Anything mushroom will take you to paradise. Well done and at a great price.Tasted: 02 July 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
