Overview

You've got to love it when the winemaker unabashedly tells you she's got a soft spot for this particular grape. Even more when you know she's about to share big time by pouring a 12-year vertical of her Cabernet Franc at a tasting in Vancouver for local fans. Often a blending wine, Cabernet Franc does very well in the South Okanagan where it's often bottled on its own. The 2007 is one of Oldfield's best yet. It's seductive with aromas of herbs, blackberries, plums, chocolate and a little barnyard too. Nicely balanced. An excellent food wine or casual sipper.
