Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Peller Estates Private Reserve Cabernet Franc 2007 Wine Review
Deep, dark, lovely and rich! This full-bodied beauty is redolent with dark chocolate, espresso and blackberry aromas. Round and deep and ultimately satisfying. 4.4/5 Private Reserve Cabernet Franc food pairings: prime rib and garlic mashed potatoes; herb-crusted rack of lamb; 2-year-old Canadian cheddar with walnuts and fresh bread; grilled beef tenderloin with Cabernet jus and stir-fry of wild mushrooms.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings
? A classic single varietal harvested from the premium vineyards of Niagara.
? Fermented on skins for 14 days to develop colour, flavour and structure (tannin).
? Aged for 12 months using 100% American oak barrels with full malolactic fermentation.
? Garnet colour with a wonderful, evolving bouquet of sweet cedar and oak, sweet tobacco, black plums, sweet spice, cherry and fig.
? A medium-bodied wine with fruit-forward flavours of juicy black fruits accented by almost sweet notes of oak and spice.
? The soft but firm tannins provide structure and ageability.
? Juicy black fruits and Indian spice linger on the finish.
