Church & State Wines Cabernet Franc 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe nose is a savoury, lightly smoky affair that previews a mid-weight red fruited wine with ripe black cherries and blackberry compote wrapped in a blanket of toasted oak and dark chocolate. There's not a lot of finesse here, but nothing a piece of grilled protein can’t tame. Lamb chops or a meaty pizza would be the match. The final blend spent one year in 25% new French oak. The fruit comes off three South Okanagan vineyards: Foundation, Coyote Bowl, and Bella, over a mix of sandy gravel soils.Tasted: 17 April 2023Tasted by: Prices:
