Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
One of the best wines in BC! This interesting and delicious wine is a play between the bright elegant floral notes of Cabernet Franc and the brooding, forest floor earthiness and fruit juiciness of Malbec.
The 2016 Cabernet Franc Malbec wine is best served with roasted lamb, game or stews. It also combines beautifully with mushroom dishes and hard cheeses.
If you're a wine geek or love the unusual, then our 2016 Cabernet Franc Malbec is the wine for you.
