River Stone Estate Winery 2013 Cabernet Franc (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $26 (including taxes)
Production: 143 cases
Date Tasted: June 25th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Shows depth on the nose with blackberry, wild flower'n'herbs, plum, soft spices, boysenberry and light cedar aromas. The dry, well-structured palate expresses similar flavours with added coffee grind and earthy notes and fine, ripe tannins. The finish is long and balanced with lingering wild berry notes.
Consistently one of the best Cabernet Francs in the Okanagan Valley every year, the 2013 is showing signs of vineyard maturity and potential for further development in the bottle. Would benefit from another 6 months in bottle. Drink late-2014-2018.
