The roller-coaster 2017 vintage in Ontario is on full display here, with a big thank you to a great fall season that allowed the grapes to ripen to the proper level. This Cabernet Franc is showing very well at the moment. On the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of a fresh black forest cake, kirsch, dark cherry and dark chocolate curls. Spice and herbal notes intertwine throughout the aromatics. On the palate, the texture has softened up with time and the flavours have matured to express cassis jam, macerated cherry, dark chocolate ganache, dried herbs, caramel, cedar and pencil shavings, to add complexity. A sequence of dry tannins and cedar box appears on the finish for a very long and persistent finale. This is a serious wine with loads of complexity. (re-tasted CWC, 14/04/23). 240 cases made.
