Ontario Reviews

Vineland Estates 2007 Cabernet Franc Reserve
The Chardonnay-ophiles and the Riesling-geeks can say what they like, but for my money Cabernet Franc is Ontario's grape to win or lose with, and after tasting this one, and what winemaker Brian Schmidt (and others) can do year-after-year with this grape I become more and more convinced. Flavours of cherry, chocolate, licorice and smoke really touch a nerve, especially when accompanied by a pleasant medium length finish. For those focused on smell try cherry and mocha notes on for size. This is easily accessible now or for the next 5+ years. Price: $40.00 - Rating: **** 1/2
