Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Cabernet Franc 2008

Member Review by zufrieden:

This pellucid wine from a well-respected vineyard has cranberry, cedar box and cola on the nose with some nicely balanced flavors on entry. These consist of cranberry and rare beef steak notes coated with residual tannin. This is not the acidic, bright expression of the Loire but rather that of muscular, fertile and youthful British Columbia. Well done. 87 points. Perfect for drinking now, though could keep for another 3 years or so.

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery:
Balance is a time-honored goal in the making of premium wines and working toward balance is a way of life at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Founder Jim Wyse is committed to balance, well beyond that of the fine, world-class wines being produced. A kind of Hippocratic oath ("to do no harm") underlies the creative viticultural and enological practices at Burrowing Owl.
