2013 Merlot-Cabernet Franc

2013 Merlot-Cabernet Franc

A twist on the classic pairing, the bright cranberry aromas of Cabernet Franc highlight the deep plum and blackberry scents of merlot.  Its charming bouquet carries over, and flavours of red and black cherries linger on the palate.  This beautifully balanced wine has a lush tannin structure, and a seamless finish.

Winemaker Notes
A young Cabernet Franc vineyard on the Naramata Bench yielded exciting fruit in this warmer than average season. After a 6 day cold-soak, it was fermented and given 27 day total skin contact giving us wine with bright intense flavours and an elegant tannin structure. Blended with merlot from four prime Naramata Bench vineyards after 13 months barrel maturation for a final split of 51% Merlot to 49% Cabernet Franc. It is bottled under screw cap to ensure the integrity of freshness and flavour.
