A luscious, deep wine of cooked cherries blended with desert earth tones.
With a vibrant, deep red color, Tinhorn Creek’s Cabernet Franc is elegant and aromatic like a 1920s party. Flourishing with notes on the nose of deep cherry, white-grape raisins and dry rose pedals, the wine’s scent gives just a sneak peak of its full, layered flavors. Opening up on the palate with blend of blackberry, cooked cherries and blackcurrant with touches of dry earth tones, this 100% estate grown wine builds with character with each sip. Soft tones of dry desert like roasted nuts and crumbly leaves also inch through on the palate before it concludes with a silky swallow.
Located in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada, Tinhorn Creek focuses on creating quality wine with a strong emphasis on terroir. With 150 acres along the Golden Mile wine growing district, Tinhorn using sustainable farming to allow the wine to show off its natural qualities.
