Even after 5 years, this Cabernet Franc is very youthful, vibrant and energetic. Just like its predecessors, this is a wine with wonderful personality, classic varietal components and great structure if you compare to other premium Cab Franc from Ontario. The nose offers loads of floral notes, pipe tobacco and dark fruits, while the palate displays cassis, blackcurrant, ripe raspberry, espresso coffee, licorice and dry sage. The finish is long and slightly peppery, while the tannins are still grippy and tenacious. The wine is muscular and a tad austere, so a generous decanting is recommended. (re-tasted CWC, 14/4/23). 250 cases made.
