Synchromesh Cabernet Franc Turtle Rock Farms 2012

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a single vineyard wine from Turtle Rock Farms, just above Naramata Bench. It spent fifteen months in neutral French oak before being bottled without fining or filtration. Black plum liquorice imbues this dense core, perfumed with ribbons of ink, wild blackberry, blueberry and brambles. A bright line of acidity draws the potent, herbal and tobacco along to a medicinal black cherry finish. Structured and coming into its skin just now.Tasted: 16 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 winery direct Producer: Synchromesh Wines Inc. CSPC: 760389
