Tinhorn Creek Cabernet Franc 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada2020 is a mix of hand and machine harvested fruit from the estate Diamondback Vineyard and other growers in Oliver and Osoyoos, fermented in stainless steel on native yeasts. Post ferment it spends one year in a mix of French, Hungarian, and American oak. The nose has intense red fruit notes, including black cherry and ripe rhubarb pie. The palate is more of the same with perfect acidity that they rightfully pitch as Chianti-like. The tannins are excellent. This wine should age effortlessly for five to seven years. Given all the current Okanagan challenges, this is one to stock up on. Real wine.Tasted: 05 May 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
