ODYSSEY CABERNET FRANC

20200615-gm-odyssey-cabernet-franc.jpg The Cabernet Franc was harvested from Osoyoos and Oliver regions of the Okanagan Valley in mid-October 2017. The wine was aged in new, one and two-year-old French oak barrels for 24 months. The top 22 barrels were selected for their structure, fruit concentration, mouth-feel, level of acidity and potential ageability. The wines were blended and later bottled in February 2020.

A purple garnet hued Cabernet Franc with a complex bouquet of smoky oak, spiced blackberry, tobacco, vanilla extract and earthy forest floor. This medium to full-bodied wine has great mouth-feel, youthful drying tannins and moderate acidity. The ripe fruit flavours include black currant, blackberry and baked blue plum which are accented by notes of spice. The extra-dry finish lingers with notes of ripe dark fruits, black tea and spice.

Enjoy with grilled red meats; lamb chops with rosemary; roasted game meats with savoury herbs; beef bourguignon; steak and kidney pies; 70% dark chocolate; two-year-old cheddar and asiago cheese.
