Cabernet Franc, Poplar Grove, VQA Okanagan Valley, BC, 2012, 14.3% abv.

Here’s a tasty drink from one of several wineries located on the Okanagan’s Naramata Bench in beautiful British Columbia.

On the eyes, it sports a dense and deep ruby with aromas of crunchy raspberries, blackberry, pine, garrigue and minerals.IMG_6901

The palate is dry with medium plus acidity and lightly wound tannins that adore charcuterie.  Flavours include more raspberry and pomegranate with cassis and dried rosemary and thyme.  Crushed rocks finish it off.

The alcohol is too high, but despite the imbalance, it’s a WSET Good bottle that will go great with anything on the grill.
