2017 Cachola Family Cabernet Franc $28 ($24.35 Wine Club Price)
Located just North of the town of Oliver on the West slope, this block of Cabernet Franc cuts into the base of the hills that define the Oliver valley. The Cachola family carefully farms this vineyard to extract the essence of Cabernet Franc delicacy while balancing beautiful ripeness attainable in the South Okanagan heat.
2017 had a cool and late start to the growing season before hitting stride with a fairly typical late season. Plenty of heat developed excellent ripeness and signature silky tannins from this site. Fresh and and vibrant with leafy tomato, ripe cherry and a crushable style of Cabernet Franc.
