Bartier Bros. Cabernet Franc 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOff the Black Sage Bench, this cab franc is tipped with 10% merlot, affording a added plushness to the plump blueberry, ripe black plum, herbal blackberry palate. This spent 14 months in neutral 225L French wood and was bottled unfined and unfiltered, and that texture is welcome on the fleshy palate. Tannins are plush, though acidity is sharp, helping sharpen this to a peppery warming finish. Best taken alongside bigger grilled meats.Tasted: 15 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
