Seriously delicious. This is one of the best Rose's the Niagara region has ever produced. It coats your palate with mouth watering fruit, herbs and spices. Refreshing and luxurious.

Let me join the chorus of praise; love it!
The staff person at the winery mentioned that there are touches of other grapes (eg Syrah) in addition to the main Cab Franc foundation.
Agree with JS that a dry version would be interesting.

Canadian wines often do not work for me, so I am pleased when I find an exception. This has a crisper, cleaner taste than the equivalent Provence Rose. Perfect for the current heat wave. I will buy more of this one.

Screw cap. Fresh cranberry, baby tomatoes, green leafy and slightly sweet aromas of medium intensity from the glass. Medium bodied on the palate with cherry, orange, mineral, and hints of strawberry flavours that start a touch sweet, but goes dry at mid-palate and continues on the medium-long, smooth finish. Very good acidity and highly recommended. Tasted March/2013.
