Harper's Trail Cabernet Franc
Harper’s Trail Estate Winery, named for the cattle drive “trail” of pioneer rancher Thaddeus Harper, is the first winery from Kamloops. Tucked into the city outskirts on the bank of the South Thompson River, Ed and Vicki Collett’s vineyard sits among rolling hills of sage and grass, home to Bighorn sheep, bears, and myriad birds. The backdrop of limestone, Hoodoos, and a natural spring set the biodiversity of this rare place. The wines reflect the region, with the minerality and crisp acidity that are becoming known to exemplify the South Thompson area.
Incredibly bright, delicate, floral, and mineral aromas are followed on a medium-weight palate with bright raspberry flavours and a subtle chocolate background. The finish is lily fresh, stoney, and long. A great match for duck, lamb or mushroom dishes.
