Narrative is about the Okanagan story and its rare extreme climate: home to both arid desert landscape and cold snowy winters. This cabernet franc is built along soft, juicy lines with vibrant red briary, black fruits and round slippery tannins. The finish is fresh and spicy. The fruit is mix of sites along the Golden Mile and Black Sage benches. The wine was fermented and aged in concrete tank for 9 months prior to bottling in late July 2017.
