VQA Cabernet Franc 2019 (Single Bottle)


SKU: CABERNET-FRANC-2019-single Category:


Alcohol 13%; Sugar 3 grams per litre

What’s special about this bottle: Nosing this rich ruby wine triggers images of sweet cedar cigar boxes and fresh berries. These continue to the palate and are enhanced by the wine’s solid yet smooth tannin structure.  A gentle rustic undertone of this vintage’s typicity for sweet-roasted root vegetables distinguishes this full bodied wine with a great finish.

2019 VQA Cabernet Franc: Grown in the prestigious St. David’s Bench sub appellation of the Niagara Escarpment, our 2019 VQA Cabernet Franc exudes an impressive tone of balance and ripeness from its carefully grown fruit. These Cab Franc grapes thrived in a mineral-rich vineyard that benefits from a unique geography with steady winds and warm sunshine to yield healthy fruit and sublime flavour development.

New French oak aided in the bouquet and flavour profile by lending a dark cocoa powder note and allowing the tannins to develop in a harmonious elegance.

This wine will evolve gracefully over the next decade, hitting its stride in the next 3 years.  Notes of aged leather and autumn may become pronounced after 5 years’ maturity.

Food Pairings: This wine will show off your meal rather than dominate.  It is your main-course red to enjoy with your favourite steaks, roasts, duck, pork, lamb or hen.  It is as easily enjoyed with soft goat cheese on a warm loaf of bread or a bowl of ravioli with tomato sauce.
