This wine originates from our Cave Spring Vineyard, nestled on a gently sloping terrace of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario known as the Beamsville Bench. This hillside terroir, with its combination of limestone-clay soils, elevation and moderating onshore breezes, provides ideal conditions for Cabernet Franc, yielding a robust wine with a spicy, mint-berry character unique to our site.
Medium ruby in colour. The nose is complex, integrated aromas of cherry-menthol, cedar, graphite and black licorice, with forest floor and eucalyptus in behind. Palate medium bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and macerating cherry fruit up front; the tannic grip loosens and broadens, melding with saturated cassis and black raspberry flavours in the middle; the finish is elegant and layered, with persistent notes of berry compote, blacktop, charcoal and peppermint.
