Cab Franc/Merlot 2012
Last 39 cases!

Short harvest on our Cab Franc tonnage in 2012 led to the evolution of Cab Franc/Merlot. A very happy accident. Fantastic fruit on merlot compliments the elegant structure provided by the Cab Franc. Nice ripe red fruit notes fill up the mouth, rounded out by a savoury hint of cedar from barrel aging. Go rib eye steak, or go home. Varietal: 74% Cabernet Franc 21% Merlot 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Considered one of the best vintages in the past 5 years, in particular for our reds. The growing season began ominously with cold temperatures and delayed bud break. This was followed by fairly even Okanagan summer weather and importantly an outstanding fall. Consistently warm days through the end of October, produced reds with amazing phenolic ripeness balanced by higher than expected sugars. Depths of color and flavor and an abundant crop but a smile on the face of this winemaker!
