Black Bank Hill 2019 Cabernet Franc, Twenty Mile Bench VQA
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
100% Cabernet Franc from the Foxcroft vineyard, de-stemmed and crushed prior to fermentation with natural yeasts and 18-months élevage in 225L neutral French oak barrels. After an initial whiff of the farmyard on the nose, aromas of blackberry, cherry, green pepper, and spearmint come forward. On the palate, the wine opens to a swath of blue and black fruits, a full mid-palate showing a seam of Cab Franc’s herbaceous character and a solid finish with balanced acidity. The wine has solid tannins and an aging potential of 7 to 10 years of improvement. If opened earlier, will be better on day 2, or a long decant is recommended to experience the full profile and flavor of the wine. It benefits from pairing with food to bring out the full complexity of the wine, particularly red meats.
Fully dry, 13.5% abv., 120 cases produced.
