This wine is intense and powerful, starting off very welcoming
when mid palate you can start to feel the tannins coat your
palate as the fruit transforms into a structured and savory
finish. You end on a pleasantly dry note that will keep you
hooked wanting to go back for more. The aromas of this wine
are crushed red currants, savory roasted bell pepper, wet shale,
strawberry jam and bramble berry.

On our organic managed property located in the heart of St.
David’s we have two unique blocks where Cabernet Franc is
planted. The soil and driveway are what separate the two blocks
(Lonna’s block to the West and Nancy’s block to the East).
Lonna’s site is slightly more vigorous and retains more heat
than Nancy’s. It is believed that having the vines planted on the
old horse paddock may be responsible for this by incorporating
higher organic matter into the soil. Nancy’s block has just a
little more sand in the soil profile (especially the rows further
East), but this is just an example as to why this site is so fun to
work with. It’s an ancient eco-hub where glaciers, land forms,
melted water and ancient oceans interacted with each other
over a span of millions of years and contributed to one of the
oldest agricultural sites in Canada.
