This wine is our first release from this vintage, and it is a wonderful example of both the varietal and the year. The dark ruby colour is the first indication of the concentration that this Cabernet Franc attained. Ripe black fruits dominate the nose, punctuated with spicy notes of roasted red bell pepper and white pepper spice.
94 points – "The focus, presence and confidence of this wine stand apart, all worked specific to place and the uniqueness of the appellation. Benefits from a double-lake effect and different soils. Chalk and river stone liquidity running as a river of its own right through. Drives the point of patience, to allow a vineyard the chance to speak of its singular phraseology." – Michael Godel
93 points – "Lovely. Classic. Earthy and peppery. Full-bodied, balanced, and supple. Absolutely classic cool climate archetype." – John Szabo, WineAlign
