Description

Cabernet Franc has quickly established itself as a ‘go-to’ grape in the south Okanagan. Once known chiefly as a component grape for classic Bordeaux blends, it has now broken out on its own and is loved for its unique charms. These include deep expressive flavours of tobacco, dark spice, herbaceous green pepper, and a tiny hint of mint. All of this is achieved while maintaining supple tannins and dark berry flavours. The finish is pleasant and lengthy.

  1. Peter Hellman

    In early April, Bordertown was selected along with 6 other BC wineries to exhibit other BC in NYC at James Beard House for the amazing Chef Ned Bell seafood extravaganza luncheon.  Chef Ned Bell did the most incredible magic and paired Bordertown’s Cabernet Franc with BC salmon with mushrooms, celery root and hearts, and the most fabulous black truffle dressing.

    “I have been very impressed with the wines today. The cabernet franc with that food pairing reminded me of something I would taste from the Loire Valley.” – Peter Hellman, Wine Spectator.

  2. John Schreiner

    Here is a classic brambly expression of a varietal that is a rising star. It begins with aromas blackberry and black cherry. On the palate, there rich flavours of dark fruits mingled with tobacco, chocolate and spicy oak. Full-bodied, the wine has a lingering finish. 92.
