Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Earthy and spicy. A full bodied wine with a smooth, long finish. Flavours of blackberries, black cherries, strawberries, tobacco, leather, coffee and black pepper which interact with each other to produce a smooth, lingering finish on your palate. Best serving temperature 16 to 19 C
Winemaker Notes
An iconic varietal of the Niagara Peninsula, grapes for this 2012 Cabernet Franc Terroir were harvested during one of the most stellar seasons on record. Picked from three top-tier vineyards, including the home farm, the wines were fermented separately before maturation in American (92%) and French (8%) oak barriques for 19 months. A blend of 12 barrels from equal parts new and old oak, the 2012 Cabernet Franc shows a gorgeous delicacy while staying true to itself, and will age gracefully throughout the years to come.
Food Pairing Notes
Rack of lamb (served pink), Lamb Osso Bucco on angel hair pasta, veal chop with portobello mushrooms, eggplant Parmesan, Manchego, Asiago or Asadero cheese.
