Natalie's Score: 92/100

A superb cool-climate Cabernet Franc, quite possibly the best I've tasted yet from Ontario. Fleshy ripe black plums depths give way to savoury herbs and cedar smoke. Full-bodied, supple and rich with a satisfying long finish. Yes please!

Cabernet Franc food pairings: wood-fired prosciutto & arugula pizza, beef carpaccio with shaved Parmesan, Ossobuco with lemon gremolata.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Only the highest quality fruit from the very best Lincoln Lakeshore sites was chosen
to craft the Reserve Cabernet Franc. In a warm and long growing season like 2010,
the result is a rich, yet elegant Cabernet Franc of extraordinary complexity. Enticingly
layered, the nose is vibrant and changing, sweet fruit notes of black cherry, blackcurrant and pomegranate giving way to white pepper, peppermint tea and cedar. Dark fruit notes also dominate the palate along with dried herbs, black peppercorn and a hint of spice from 18 months in French oak.

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.
