River Stone Cabernet Franc Rosé 2023

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Oliver estate, Boulder Vineyard, this deeply hued pink is their inaugural cabernet franc rosé. The grapes were cold soaked up to 48 hours before pressing and a cold fermentation in stainless, where they rested three months on lees. Ripe strawberry, pear, and pear skin rest atop a thick lactic base, kissed with smoke and subtle spice to a tart, snappy finish. Some work ahead here.Tasted: 16 May 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
