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.
Tawse Winery Inc. Grower's Blend Cabernet Franc 2009 Wine Review
Chocolate-mocha on the nose from oak aging followed by plush black plums and a supple, medium- to full-bodied weight and texture on the palate. 4.5/5 Cabernet Franc food pairings: mature cheeses, grilled red meat, braised game meat.

|Deep colour, intense nose and great structure make it a great example of Niagara Cabernet Franc. It shows rich, ripe, black cherry and currant, with distinct notes of tobacco and chocolate.|
The mouth feel is pronounced due to strong flavors, great acidity and evident tannins. Lingering spicy notes of white pepper create a fabulous finish.
Cellar it for a year to allow it to attain its potential.
