Taste it Again : Pondview 2012 Bella Terra Cabernet Franc - unfiltered

01 Mar 2019

Pondview 2012 CF


(August 17, 2018) ... This is a check-in to see just how well this wine is holding up ... 2012 was a great red vintage in Ontario and Cabernet Franc would have fair wonderfully well. The original review of this wine was glowing and now, six years later, was I justified in that review? Time to take a look:

The nose is loaded with  blackberry, black cherry, smoky tobacco and some alcohol heat, maybe to be expected based on the vintage, but it's not a deal breaker ... the palate has spicy tobacco with good acidity, nice black cherry, blackberry, and cassis fruit and hints of white pepper kicking around giving it a long finish ... there is still plenty of life left in this bottle, so if you have any you can safely let it lie or pull one out now and give it a try.
