Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Releases 2010 Oldfield Series Cabernet Franc
Tinhorn Creek Vineyards is excited to release their first vintage of 2010 Oldfield Series Cabernet Franc. Several years in the making, this unique wine features 100% Cabernet Franc grapes, which were picked in October 2010 from a specially selected area of the vineyard. Barrel-aged for 15 months, the Oldfield Series vintage has spent the last nine months ageing in the bottle; ready for release on February 1, 2013.
A limited edition of 374 cases will only be available through the winery and Tinhorn Creek Vineyards’ Miradoro Restaurant. Although it was once dismissed as a difficult varietal, Cabernet Franc is growing a loyal following from wine lovers looking for a special characterful red and is now one of the Okanagan’s most exciting red varietals.
Sandra Oldfield’s ongoing passion for the varietal has produced a complex vintage that was picked on October 21, 2010 from their Diamondback Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench. All the Cabernet Franc came from a single block that was specially selected to create the Oldfield Series vintage.
The Oldfield Series Cabernet Franc is available in limited quantities for $34.99 at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards www.tinhorn.com/Oldfield-Series-Cabernet-Franc.
