Little Engine Cabernet Franc (Platinum Label) 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe first cabernet franc release by Little Engine is big, 15.1 percent (alcohol) big. The nose is open and lifted showing rich floral, leafy tobacco notes with a spicy undercurrent. The attack is similar with juicy, spicy red and black fruit with a whack of vanilla and toasted oak. Big bold, ripe and slightly cooked, this youthful red California style red will need five years more in bottle to settle down. If you must open it now serve it with a fire-grilled steak.Tasted: 25 May 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 75.00 winery direct Producer: Little Engine WinesDistributors: Winery Direct
