An intense nose showing both the pretty, complex side of Cabernet Franc and the ripeness of the Okanagan’s 2013 vintage. There are aromas of lavender, purple flowers, red currant, oak and blueberry with a nice savoury note of tobacco, and dried sage. The palate is silky textured, medium in body with lovely refreshing acidity. Cherry, ripe raspberry, cassis, blackberry and some peppery spice end with a long finish. This wine has the concentration and structure to age well. Try with braised lamb shanks.
