"Naysayer" 2015

Cab Franc/Merlot

80% Cab Franc 

20% Merlot 

Earliest harvest dates that we have had ever for both varieties. Super hot conditions and an extremely low yield year resulted in very concentrated expression of flavors. Roasted red pepper, black cherry rounded out with a touch of that smoky character we love in Cab Franc. Softer acids than in previous vintages but with nicely structured tannin that will lend well to aging this wine for at least another 5 - 7 years. Beautiful extended finish of those concentrated flavours of dried black cherry, raspberry and plum.

Production Notes
Crafted in Del’s ‘Patience Program’: give red wines enough time in barrel and bottle, and let them tell their own story. All red wines are aged 12-18 months in barrel and an additional 12-22 months in bottle, for a minimum 36 months aging prior to release. We use only french oak from a selection of coopers that through experimentation, we feel best compliment the fruit we grow in our Naramata farms.
