2018 Cachola Family Vineyards Cabernet Franc Rose $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. These grapes were picked at an earlier ripeness in order to make a wine not about colour but texture and aromatics.
Cantaloupe rind and grapefruit dominate the aromatics with pithy melon flesh in the mouth. Bone dry, this is a singular wine every year.
