The wine is a brilliant ruby colour. The nose suggests raspberry pie, cinnamon and a hint of pepper and bramble. A sip brings an explosion of raspberry to the palate, and a remarkably balanced structure. There is vibrant acidity, balanced by velvety tannins. The raspberry flavours show throughout, along with some strawberry and cinnamon stick. The finish is long, with ripe red berries, cinnamon and a little pepper at the end. The team at Tawse present Ontario wine drinkers with a beautiful introduction to Cabarnet Franc, and at a generous price point for an outstanding example of the varietal.
