An exceptional BC Cab Franc but maybe not an exceptional Cab Franc?
Cherries, berries, with a hint of candied flowers, that soapy sweet smell of guest soaps back in the day, soft and floral and fake, then a punchy spice mix on the palate, a mix of clove, star anise, pepper. To my mind A1, if at times without polish. Not as swoon-worthy as the Alegria blend, but delicious to the dregs.
Price: $30 at the now defunct White Rock Swirl.
Market Liquidity: Assertive but not exceptionally assured.
