Tinhorn Creek Vineyards 2013 Cabernet Franc (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here, BCLDB and VQA stores
Production: 4037 cases
Date Tasted: October 10th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Opens with a meaty, dusty, nose of boysenberry, anise, wild sagebrush, dried bay leaf, pipe tobacco and pine sap aromas. The palate is dry and rather intense with similar flavours and a mouth-watering blend of bright, blue fruit and savoury, earthy notes. Certainly, a masculine wine with added depth from cooking spices, French oak and mineral notes. Should make a good fit for Fall weather, hearty food pairing like beef stew. Drink now-2017.
