The Black Sage Vineyard Cabernet Franc is produced from tenacious vines that for over 20 years have thrived in the rugged South Okanagan desert. Aged in French and American oak for more than 14 months, it offers ripe berry and strawberry flavours mingled with earthy notes and hints of vanilla and spice. The nose has pleasant notes of red berries, some red currants, dried strawberries, and smoky mocha notes. The flavours on the nose carry over to the palate with bright red fruits, mocha and vanilla, and some hints of spice on the finish. The acidity is lively and the tannins are firm yet approachable.
