Bartier Bros. Cabernet Franc 2021

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe aromas and flavours jump from the glass, spewing blackberry, red plums, and smoky, wild, peppery notes. The tannins are rich but soft and have a mineral flinty underside, keeping the finish juicy, fresh, and persistent. Spaghetti Bolognese is a fun match, but others would include duck, lamb shoulder, or baked vegetarian dishes. The grapes grown at Cerqueira Vineyard, Black Sage Terrace, Oliver, were destemmed and crushed into five and ten ton open top fermenters. After a 24-day fermentation, it spent 14 months in neutral French oak. The final blend was 92/8 cabernet franc/merlot.Tasted: 12 June 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
