2017 SBL Cabernet Franc
This wine is an excellent example of what great Cabernet Franc can be in the Okanagan Valley.
This is intensely aromatic with typical fragrances of wild blackberry, ripe plum, cassis and menthol supported by superbly complex French oak. The palate shows great structure, yet round with silky tannins and is highlighted with notes of cassis, nutmeg, hints of cigar box and dusty red earth. A benchmark example of the variety.
This 2017 SBL Cabernet Franc is excellent drinking now but will reward anyone that puts this wine away for years to come.
