Ravine Cabernet Franc 2017
The fruit from our Cabernet Franc comes from growers in Niagara-on-the-Lake along with grapes from our very own estate. Each appellation in the region has a distinct version of this variety. In St. Davids, warmer summers play a role in promoting ripeness and developing complexity in our Cabernet Franc. I hope you enjoy one of Ontario’s signature red wine.
Our 2017 Cab Franc is bright garnet hue. It is showing aromas of violet, cranberry relish, and fresh thyme leaves. It is a softer version of the variety. Tannins here are more of a subtlety than aggressive and grippy. This wine finishes with a lingering berry flavour.
This wine is a great match for lamb chops marinated in rosemary and garlic. It would also be at home with a nice piece of old cheddar.
