Youthful, savoury, fresh.
Without doubt, Michael Bartier is one of British Columbia's most talented and humble winemakers. He makes honest wines and trusts the site and the fruit to dictate the wine. This Cab Franc comes from fruit grown on the Black Sage gravel bar in the estate Cerqueira Vineyard.
It's definitely young and the nose is quite muddled with cherries and vanilla, salted licorice and currents, green olives, leather, tomato leaf and sage. It's savoury in the mouth with chalky tannins and dusty wild berry fruit; the finish is spiced with hints of arugula.
