Cabernet Franc

Deep aromas of cranberries and cedar mulch, this wine is full-bodied with opulent tannin. Flavours of cocoa, sweet tobacco, and blackberries leading into a long, flavourful finish.

Critic's Rating

The fruit for this Fedorko Vineyard sourced Cab Franc was aged in used French and American oak for 14 months before being bottled. It has a savoury nose of ripe cherries, brambly raspberries, crunchy cranberries, forest berries, cigar leaf and oak spice notes. It’s a rich and full-bodied wine on the palate with tamed tannins, a mélange of red berries, some anise and cassis, earthy/savoury notes and loaded with oak spices. Can cellar 5+ years.
