A fantastic terroir-driven wine: “Old World” barn yard, Loire Valley style. Everything you would expect from a Niagara Franc is in there…and more! On the nose, aromas of dark fruits, a blend of basil and thyme, farm yard and violet. The palate is completely in line with aromas offering a great mix of blackberry, dark cherry, dark currants, a splash of blueberry jam, mint chocolate, green pepper, tobacco leaves and a charcoal minerality to add a rugged texture fitting the rustic “Old World” style of this wine, including a good level of pyrazines. The tannins are still a main actor from the mid-palate on, while the finish includes oak spices, cinnamon and cloves. That distinctive feel of minerality surfs throughout the mouthfeel. Interesting fact: we found some similarity with a couple other wines sourced from the same Foxcroft Vineyard, on the Twenty Mile Bench, which truly highlights that this wine is a “Terroir Experience.”
