Natalie's Score: 89/100

Deep, dark, lovely and rich! This full-bodied beauty is redolent with dark chocolate, espresso and blackberry aromas. Round and deep and ultimately satisfying.

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.

WINE MAKING
? 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.

FLAVOUR PROFILE
? 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.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
Bronze Medal – Canadian Wine Awards 2009.
