Tantalus Cabernet Franc Furthur Afield Series 2022

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker David Patterson said Cabernet Franc was a natural choice for the next Further Afield series because “It’s a variety we have long admired in BC.” Expect an attractive, juicy red that is a nod to Loire but made with the sensibility of a pinot specialist. Patterson has tamed the herbaceous, savoury notes and pushed the ripe blueberry and black fruits to the foreground, all sitting on a silky tannin structure that melts in your mouth. Fresh, smooth, intense, and it finishes clean and long, this is Next World cabernet franc. Considerable value.Tasted: 24 April 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
