Lunessence Cabernet Franc 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA rare, red, single variety release from Lunessence, this full-blown southern Okanagan cabernet franc opens with more terroir than fruit. Dried plums mixed with licorice, wet stone, and minerals pull you into the wine. Savoury, smoky, ripe black cherry and blueberry carry the mid-palate, with a daub of dark chocolate in the finish. Stylish and reserved, this is a weighty bottle of young franc. You can drink this now or rest it in the cellar. The choice is yours. The winemaking is unchanged from last year: 40% of the wine was foot-trodden, fermented, and aged in French oak for 12 months (12 percent new). Barbecue ribs or lamb chops would be good choices at the moment.Tasted: 04 September 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
