Blackwood Lane 2007 Cabernet Franc - 91pts

Blackwood Lane 2007 Cabernet Franc (Langley) Fraser Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery
Cost: $44
Alcohol: 13.4%
Date Tasted: March 19th, 2011

Tasting Notes: An excellent Cabernet Franc with red berry, cedar, licorice, spice and oak characters whose mid-palate has been filled-out with 10-12% Merlot adding to the excellent and succulent texture. Winemaker Charles Herrold uses whole-berry fermentation in his Cabernet Franc production to bring out concentrated berry flavours which add a perception of sweetness to the fully-dry palate. Round tannins and mellowed acidity due to extended incubation at the winery prior to its release have created a complex and challenging wine that remains fun and easy-drinking. Enjoy now or add to your cellar for further development. Drink 2011-2017.
