Winemaker Notes
This small vineyard has west-facing slopes on the most southernly part of the Valley's eastern side. When standing on the site, one has a feeling of being on the edge. Coupled with the "vista", the view and the right-of-way at this unprotected international border where Canada and the US connect, it was fitting to name this wine, Vista's Edge. Cabernet Franc tends to be smaller fruit and with more cylindrical clusters that are tighter than Cabernet Sauvignon due to a greater berry set. In this inaugural vintage of Vista's Edge Cabernet Franc, there is a subtlety in the layers of flavour against a refined structure of bright acidity and tannins that are present but nicely contained.
