Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2004 Cabernet Franc - 88pts

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2004 Cabernet Franc (Oliver) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery

Cost: $39.00

Alcohol:  14.1%

Date Tasted: January 1st, 2010

Tasting Notes:  An excellent Cabernet Franc with a surprisingly short finish.  The appearance was concentrated ruby almost opaque.  The nose was concentrated and complex with notes of candied fruit, graphite, blueberry and vanilla.  The palate exhibited green pepper, blueberry, and vanilla.  This wine had an amazing nose with a wall of aromas, great concentration and good tannins.

This was a great wine but I think it has reached its peak and maybe getting on the tired side.  If you do have this sitting in your cellar.  I say drink it now.  The nose will keep you at it for a while guaranteed.  HC
