This is a terrific showing of what Ontario can do with Cab Franc. Aged 13 months in a blend of French, Hungarian and American oak, 45% of which was new, this is is quite the powerhouse red coming from the hot ’07 vintage. Ripe aromas of cassis and dark cherry with some face cream and a hint of iodine/bloody notes. Full bodied with concentrated flavours of cassis, earth, fruit roll-up, spice and black licorice, Powerful but elegant with fine tannin, balanced acidity and nice length. Ready to drink now with roast game or braised beef.
