Shipped and sold by Kacaba Vineyards

2019 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL
Cabernet Franc
Critic's Rating 93 pts
This voluptuous wine with intriguing aromatics of ripe black cherry, boysenberry with nuances of nutmeg, and fine leather. The palate is full-bodied and rich with luscious flavors of black currant and cranberry complimented by savory notes of cumin, coriander, white pepper and thyme.

Critic's Rating

One of Kacaba's new Premium Series, an upscale label line of wine. Very reminiscent of Right Bank (St Emilion) cabs but without the stuffing of, say, Cheval Blanc. It is just as durable at this young age. Currently it is mute until tasted later after aeration. What I usually do is a double-decant, taste, and then leave it in a sealed bottle for a week or so, with daily tastings. If you don't do this, then the wine will be ready in six to ten years. Complex aromas begin to ascend and descend as the week rolls on. First some cherries -- mostly red with Ontario cranberry, but later also black. Some vanilla smoke, savoury herby spiciness, even coffee and chocolate (that'll please the millennials). Again, strong (aged or gamey) red meat is called for food pairing. Quality/Price rating is 92 - 93 points
