2020 John Oliver Cabernet Franc
John Oliver Cabernet Franc


An elegant and powerful red with ripe flavours of red and black fruit that was created with our Wine Club members in mind! 

91 Points - Decanter World Wine Awards
“Pretty nose of red fruit, baking spice and herb, palate of supple tannins, plush dark fruit and elegant spice.”

Gold, 2023 WineAlign National Wine Awards
"A new line for Road 13, labelled for the namesake of the town of Oliver, former 1918 Premier of BC, "Honest" John Oliver brought irrigation and settlement lots to the area with the South Okanagan Lands Project, engineered the Okanagan Canals, and was an advocate for women’s rights. The first single varietal cabernet franc bottling for the winery is sourced from the East Osoyoos vineyard block and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels, 40% of which were new. A unique expression of the variety that couldn't have originated from anywhere else except the southern Okanagan. Highly perfumed with wildflower and notes of leather and bergamot. The oak treatment is still a touch dominant but there is ample fruit stuffing for greater integration with time in bottle. Excellent length." - Sara d'Amato, Wine Critic

Winemaker Notes
The first single varietal Cabernet Franc from Road 13 was created with our Wine Club members in mind! The fruit for this small lot wine comes from our East Osoyoos vineyard block. Hand harvested and hand-sorted, destemmed and fermented for 28 days on skins to extract the perfect balance of tannin and fruit. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (40% new).

Rich, elegant tannins with ripe flavours of red and black fruit edify the elegance and power discovered in this red.

Vineyard Notes
The 2020 growing season will be remembered for an early start, a dry summer, and warmer than average fall temperatures resulting in juicy flavour profiles and intense fruit quality.
