Cabernet Franc is one of the classic red grapes used to make famous French Bordeaux Cabernets. It makes especially good Cabernet from the Pelee Island Vineyards because it ripens early and welling the warm island microclimate.

Deep purple-red in colour. Perfectly ripe fruit on the nose, with fresh raspberries and black currant aromas, and a hint of cedar. Succulent summer berry pie flavours on the palate, with supple tannins, medium acidity and a long, spicy finish.

    Way under priced. A lot of bang for the buck!

    Subtle sweetness that is balanced by the soft tannin structure. This lighter style red wine offers flavours are ripe and appealing.

    At this price, buy by the case for everyday drinking. You can open a bottle without guilt.
