Natalie's Score: 92/100

The 2007 vintage was long and hot which resulted in succulently ripe reds, especially this Cabernet Franc. It has towering structure and flavour along with massive depth of fleshy back fruit. An incredible wine.

Cabernet Franc Legacy Series food pairings: grilled striploin or braised short ribs-flavourful meats with rich berry sauces. Great at the end of a meal with aged cheddar..

Legacy Series indicates the best varietal of the particular vintage. Grapes were harvested on October 28th from the Oppenlander Vineyard in the Four Mile Creek sub appellation in Niagara on the Lake. this select lot of fruit was warm fermented on one tonne bins. Skin contact lasted for 16 days and then put into new and used French and American Oak. Malo lactic fermentation was completed in the barrel and then aged for 16 months.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
