2017 Cabernet Franc
VQA Lincoln Lakeshore
Dry, Residual Sugar 3 g/l, ABV 13.5%
2017 had a very wet spring and early summer months, but as we moved into the fall season the rain subsided and stayed nice and warm right through to November. This long warm fall allowed the Cabernet Franc to ripen beautifully on the vine. The nose showcases charred red peppers, plump blackberries surrounded with baking spices. The palate is full, rich and has great layers of blackberries and raspberries, hints of cocoa and anise and the finish just makes you want to take another sip. This wine pairs well with anything from the BBQ grill all the way to smoked cheese and spicy cured meats. Drink now or cellar it for up to 5-8 years.
