Tinhorn Creek Cabernet Franc 2008

Tinhorn Creek Cabernet Franc 2008
BC, $17.99
Time and time again I hear consumers say that while they’re fans of Okanagan wines, they’re not fans of the perpetual $25+ price tag that so many come with-especially when solid offerings from Chile and Argentina often arrive in the West with seriously lower price points. This is why you should immediately go source a bottle of Tinhorn Creek’s 2008 Cabernet Franc. It’s arguably the region’s finest expression of this tricky grape and at $17.99 it’s the undisputed best deal in Okanagan wines. Winemaker Sandra Oldfield has conjured a bite of peppery cherries with notes of oak and vanilla and enough tannins to stand up to grilled lamb or even a smoky chili.
