Synchromesh Cabernet Franc Turtle Rock Farms 2014

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom a single vineyard high up on Naramata Bench, this cabernet franc was 100 percent whole cluster fermented before spending twenty months in new French oak. The wine was then bottled without fining or filtration. Pretty, perfumed raspberry, black raspberry and medicinal hued cherry core is streaked with a sasparilla cola note. Very raspy tannins point to the youth of this wine (I tasted an unreleased sample for this note) but the structure is indicative of its capacity for aging. Looking forward to tasting again.Tasted: 16 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Synchromesh Wines Inc.Distributors: Artisan Food and Beverage Group Inc.
