Karlo Cabernet Franc 2015
Take the spoils of County cabernet franc fruit from a roost 100m higher than the Bay of Quinte, put it into the hands of winemaker Derek Barnett and boom! The County has a new ideal. The intensity of fruit from the humid place they call Lake of the Mountain will nurture and provide for cabernet franc with pride and joy. This is the manifest state of discovery for Prince Edward County, a region from which particular growing sites are emerging with precocious clarity. That wines like these are popping up and delivering the goods so quickly speaks volumes about potential. The richness, filled in hollows and overall seamlessness is impressive. Not to mention the purity and clarity of fruit and stone. Imagine a Rothko painting in deep crimson and violet with a faint creamy ecru or albescent streak running through the middle. Now think on this as limestone (or something mineral) cutting across a canvas of dark berry. Moments of currant and tobacco exist but they whiff as passing notes. Drink: 2017-2021. Score - 90.
