Critic's Rating 93 pts

This single vineyard Cabernet Franc showcases the unique terroir of the Oppenlaender Vineyard, situated in Niagara-on-the-Lake's Four Mile Creek sub-appellation.

An elegant nose of cherry compote, toast, and a hint of elderflower. Smooth with fine tannins on the palate and a gentle, flavourful finish.

Critic's Rating

The fruit from the Oppenlaender Vineyard was machine picked and optical sorted before being fermented whole berry for 28 days, then pressed. It was aged in used French oak for 24 months before being filtered and bottled. What a gorgeous expression of CF with a savoury nose of brambly raspberries, ripe dark cherries, herbs, an underlying floral note with some oak spices. There is an elegant feel on the palate from the rounded tannins in support of brambly red berries, cigar leaf, spice and herbs with a lifted and long finish. Can cellar 5+ years.
