Wine Region: VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario Canada
Grape: Cabernet Franc
The Grower’s Blend series showcases the exceptional fruit coming from various vineyards throughout the Niagara Peninsula. The nose is rich with black licorice, dark fruit and cigar box aromas. On the palate, herbaceous notes of oregano are married with notes of blueberry and a hint of oak. With its balanced tannins and lively acidity, this wine that will pair beautifully with with lamb chops, pasta with Bolognese or Veal parmigiana.

91 points, John Szabo, MS, winealign.com. Here's a nicely perfumed, properly pine and herb-tinged, varietally-accurate example of cabernet franc, complete with graphite and dark berry fruit flavours. I love the succulence and the juiciness, the firm palate, well-balanced, the fine length, and the elegance and depth. Solid, quality winemaking.
