Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"The 2010 vintage is classic Cab Franc with raspberry-bramble bush aromas followed by currants, soft spice, tobacco and licorice. It’s simply delicious on the palate with raspberries and dark fruits, earth, cedar, smoke, herbs and gritty tannins that all lead to a long finish." - Rick van Sickle, July 2012

Winemaker Notes
We are making a rich, heavy style wine while maintaining the varietal characteristics. After primary fermentation, 100% of the wine was inoculated with ML and barreled down into 2-3 year old American and French Oak barrels for 12 months.

There's a reason this wine sells out every year. Really good wine for a great price.

At the Boxwood in Calgary for a food and wine tasting. This wine paired with rotisserie goose breast with pan drippings and baby white almond potatos.... TO DIE FOR!
