Natalie's Score: 85/100

A full-bodied red wine blend of three unique hybrid grapes that grow well the cool climate of the Ottawa region in eastern Ontario. Aromas and flavours of wild blueberries and blackberries, with tangy, mouth-watering acidity. Pair this wine with a rare, juicy steak and fried onions.

Sabrevois Frontenac Noir Cabernet De Montage food pairings: bacon, caramelized onions, mushroom dishes.

With their unique cascading foliage, the Sabrevois vines are the most beautiful in our vineyard, and their grapes explode with sweetness when you bite into them. Blending them with our Frontenac Noir produces this deep ruby wine with aromas of rich blackcurrant, dark cherry and cinnamon. It’s dry at first has a long fruit finish and pleasant acidity. This blend compliments the striking characteristics of both grapes delivering a wine that pairs beautifully with rich flavours like bacon, caramelized onions and mushrooms. We’re proud to add this vintage to our vineyard’s legacy and we hope you enjoy drinking it, as much as we enjoyed growing and making it.

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.

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.
