Bonamici Cellars Okanagan Valley Merlot Cabernet Franc 2012


You don't see too many blends of merlot and cabernet franc in Australia. This one's also from the new world, but from a place you might not have heard of - the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia in Canada. I expect it can't be found in Australia, but since I am not actually selling anything here(!) I thought why not post it. It's a blend of 75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc and proves both surprisingly Bordeaux like (for a Bordeaux fan) and very drinkable. It has very typical cedar, tobacco and blackcurrant aromas and a lovely balance on the palate.
