The Wine
We planted one acre of Cabernet Franc in early 2017 and bought 1 tonne of Cabernet Franc to blend into 2 tonnes of Anarchist Merlot to see if we liked the blend. Many thanks to Red Brick Vineyards on the East Bench of Osoyoos just below our vineyard for making this available.


Vinification:

The Cabernet and Merlot were co-fermented and aged in barrels and puncheon from various French forests and finished in August.


Wine Style:
On the palate there is the lush, smooth red fruit of Merlot with the delightful structure of tobacco, pepper and leather. The Cabernet Franc provides structure and spice, allowing a full mouth feel and long finish.
