Nichol Vineyard Estate Winery 2006 Cabernet Franc - 89pts
Availability: Limited. Direct from winery or select private shops
Date Tasted: August 12th, 2010
Tasting Notes: The small boutique winery on Naramata bench makes some great wines including a lovely Pinot Noir, but the Cabernet Franc steals the show. The fruit is expressed beautifully wrapped nicely in round, slightly green tannins. Aromas of dark fruit, coffee grinds, vanilla, anise, oak and barnyard notes on the nose are followed by similar flavours on the dry palate with good concentration and weight. Drink now. 2010-2012.
