2016 Cabernet Franc Malbec

2016 Cabernet Franc Malbec
Gold Medal Winner

GOLD ~ 2019 WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada

One of the best wine in BC! This interesting and delicious wine is a play between the bright elegant floral notes of Cabernet Franc and the brooding, forest floor earthiness and fruit juiciness of Malbec. If you're a wine geek or love the unusual, then this is the wine for you.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This unique blend is the perfect balance of our bright and lifted Cabernet Franc, paired with our dark and brooding Malbec. Sourced from the same vineyard in Osoyoos, this wine shows bright aromas of cherry, violets, fresh thyme and lemon peel. On the palate, flavours of bright dried cherry, raspberry and white flower are followed by crushed dried herbs, earthy forest floor and damson plum. The finish is long with fine tannins.
