Screaming Frenzy 2016 Cabernet Franc
As for the wine itself, this vintage is a declassified Black Swift wine comprised of grapes from the Grand Cru that is Hans Estate which is located along the East Osoyoos Bench (right below the Mission Hill Oculus block FYI) rounded out with a barrel of Franc from the organic paradise that is Covert Farms which is located on McIntyre's Bluff. These wines were aged in a mix of new and used American Oak which has resulted in Franc of incredible depth and darkness while retaining that classic OK Francness. We get lots ripe dark cherries, chocolate, mocha and subtle hints of anise dancing along the long and lingering finish. Yeah, it's awesome wine and we only made 300 cases of it at that. Drinkable now, but feel free to give it a year in bottle and hold it up to 7+.
Power to the people.
