Bartier Bros. Cabernet Franc 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2020 Cabernet Franc reflects the quality vintage. The 90/10 cabernet franc/merlot, grown over sandy loam topsoil on a mostly granite glacial till opens with subtle blueberry and black plum. The attack is juicy with young black fruit, a desert dusting of sagebrush, and excellent acidity heightening its peppery finish. It spends 14 months in neutral 225L French wood before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Gentle enough for chicken, and rich enough for lamb.Tasted: 06 August 2022Tasted by: Prices:
