Hester Creek Estate Winery 2008 Reserve Cabernet Franc - 90pts
Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Date Tasted: February 4th, 2011
Tasting Notes: Hester Creek consistently produce one of the Provinces top Cabernet Franc each year and the 2008 vintage is no exception. Classic Cabernet Franc funkiness on the nose is elevated by gorgeous red and dark berry aromas. The complex, dry palate offers a plethora of fruit and savoury characters with a juicy texture that signs in the mouth. This wine is very well balanced matching the tannin, acid and texture expertly resulting in a Cabernet Franc that is both fun and challenging to drink. The long finish offers lingering spice. Ready to drink now. 2011-2015.
