2013 Cabernet Franc

Posted on 24 February, 2017 at 19:20

If you haven't tried the most recent addition to our current wines, 2013 Cabernet Franc, you really must purchase a bottle. It is available to taste in our wine tasting room at the winery if you don't want to take my word for it. At only $44 per bottle it's a great value high quality wine that will boost your spirits when you taste it. Carlos has done it again. This wine is so smooth and well-balanced, with beautifully integrated fine tannins, French oak finesse and flavours of fresh, perfectly ripened strawberries and raspberries. For those of you who enjoy a bit of a floral touch to your reds, this one has it, along with subtle flavours of bell peppers and soft spices. I encourage you to come to the winery to try it for yourself. This wine is sold only at the winery for the time being. 

Did you know that Cabernet Franc is one of B.C.'s finest grapes? It grows in ideal conditions in the southern Okanagan Valley. Cabernet Franc ripens a little earlier than its son Cabernet Sauvignon (a fun fact is that Cabernet Franc crossed with Sauvignon Blanc and produced Cabernet Sauvignon grapes) and it produces a lighter coloured and bodied wine than Cabernet Sauvignon. I find that Cabernet Franc is a tasty wine to drink without food, and it pairs so well with roasted lamb dishes and many vegetarian creations.

Wine collectors can keep this wine in the cellar for another 5-10 years. It is already over three years aged and is definitely ready to drink now as well. This wine is best served at a cool room temperature (around 18C). Decant for a smoother mouthfeel. Enjoy!

Trying To Find The Best Diet Pill?

Trying to find the best diet pill may seem like an impossible task, especially with the multitude of diet pills available for purchase. Many people purchase a diet pill only to find out that the pill makes them feel jittery, nervous, or often has no effect at all.

Diet pills frequently contain the same or similar combination of ingredients and rarely contain anything new, innovative, or undiscovered to the supplement / weight loss industry. So, how can you find the best diet pill when most diet pills are made with similar ingredients?

One of the most common problems associated with taking diet pills is that the person taking the diet pill is uneducated about the dosage, effects, and promises offered as they relate to each diet pill. The research at website finds that there are three factors that should be taken into consideration when deciding to take a diet pill.

It is important to take the pill exactly as recommended on the product label. Some people choose to increase the dosage thinking that the product will work faster or better. This is not the case, and many people become sick in response to the large dose. Reviewers at website often suggest that the recommended dosage be cut in half to give the body time to adjust to the stimulant in the diet pill. After the body has adjusted, it is fine to begin taking the regular dosage as recommended on the product label.

The effects listed on the product label are there because these are the effects that the product has had on 'some' of the test group. Some of the diet pill testers may be fine taking the product, while others may have adverse effects. The diet pill companies print this information to educate the buyer as well as to protect themselves from lawsuits. The consumer needs to read the label and educate themselves before taking the product. Many people who are sensitive to caffeine are surprised when the diet pill makes them feel nervous or nauseous, but this information is likely printed on the product, so with a little research these affects can be avoided.

If you read the fine print on product claims for diet pills and other weight loss supplements, you will see 'results not typical' printed very small somewhere where you are not expected to look. The diet pills advertised on television are responsible for some of the most outlandish claims. The results claimed in these advertisements are often unattainable within the given amount of time outlined in the ad. Don't expect to see results in two weeks like a lot of ads claim.

Wouldn't it be great if you could read reviews for diet pills from actual users of each diet pill? Diet Pill Reviews website has taken the trouble out of searching for the best diet pill. You can read reviews of over 150 of the most popular diet pills available.
