2014 Culmina Cab Franc

Inky dark in color with a mild black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely vibrant black cherry noes along with some dark chocolate and mocha notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some firm tannins and vibrant acidity. This wine is a little young and needs a little breathing or decanting. There was a good deal of sediment so this would also be helped by decanting. This wine easily has another 2-5 years where it will continue to evolve and improve. A lovely wine. I would give this an 89-90. We paired it with grilled rack of lamb and it was lovely, Yumm. We bought this from the winery for $35 and have had it in the cellar for the last two years. Today you can buy the 2016 from the winery for $38. Culmina is owned by the Triggs family and is in Okanagan BC.
