Narrative Cabernet Franc 2017 


Narrative is a line of wines from Okanagan Crush Pad, meant to tell the story of the Okanagan Valley through friendly, accessible wines. Earthy forest bark, ripe raspberry, baked cherry, dried roses and milk chocolate coat this downy-textured red, weighted by the southern Okanagan sun. From certified organic vineyards in Kaledon and Osoyoos, this was fermented and aged in concrete Nico Velo for 8 months. The concrete provides a welcome textural grip to the sides of this medium bodied franc, housed by supple tannins, and finishing with peppery spice. Chill slightly, and crack into with fall fare.

“13% alcohol. From the Black Sage and Golden Mile Benches in Oliver, in the south of the region. Fermented and aged in Nico Velo concrete tanks. Organic. This has taut blackcurrant fruit with some green hints. It has a nice smoothness to the palate with a hint of gravel and chalk, and some olive tapenade notes. A great example of Cabernet Franc from the Okanagan, showing great freshness. (Aside, as with some varieties in the Okanagan, the pH is really high here at 3.97.)” 92 points, Jamie Goode, wineanorak.com
