Natalie's Score: 88/100

Mocha-rich yet not heavy. Medium-bodied and mouth-watering. This wine shows that Cabernet France can be very well made in Niagara and without a trace of bell pepper. Terrific!

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Screw cap. Plum, boysenberry, cedar aromas. More boysenberry on the palate, plus brambleberry and ripe red fruits. Hints of smokiness on the long finish. Smooth, well-integrated tannins. Medium-bodied. Fresh acidity. Ready to drink now. Tasted July/2012.
Handling: Hand Picked into small 25 kg picking bins allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery’s sorting table intact. Fruit was hand sorted crushed and de-stemmed.
Fermentation: Fermented with commercial yeast strains ICV-GRE, BM-45 and wild yeast. Fermentation took place in small ½ tonne vats. Primary fermentation took 18 days in total, wine left on skins for 21 days total. Pressed into barrel and inoculated with commercial malolactic bacteria
