Black Swift Vineyards 2015 Hans Estate Franc Syrah

‘Hans Estate Vineyard is located directly below the Mission Hill Oculus block on the East Osoyoos Bench. The blend is a very sexy 50/50 cabernet franc/syrah. The nose has an aromatic, perfumed edge with an exotic, fragrant five-spice/tea note that spills onto the palate. Youthful and slightly rambunctious, there is plenty of ripe fruit to embrace here and nothing grilled beef, lamb, or pork won’t subdue for the moment. Still, I would wait three to five years for the wine to really blossom. Well done. 90 points’ – Anthony Gismondi, Gismondi on Wine
