Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia

Reviewed: September 29, 2012


    Tawse Cabernet Franc Icewine 2010

    V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada


      My Review: Intense aromas of candied strawberry, cherry and floral aromas. Lush mouthfeel with ripe strawberry and cherry replays on the palate. Overall, it's very well-balanced by mouth-watering acidity. Lovely! Tasted Sept/2012. Score: 91/100

                D.O., Jumilla, Spain


                  My Review: Meaty and fleshy plum aromas from the cork. Aromas of blackberry, violet, cedar oak, and smoked meat from the glass. Medium-bodied on the palate with ripe, dark fruits and subtle violet notes. Very smooth and well-balanced with very finely-grained tannins. Delicious and a great value! Tasted Oct/2012. Score: 89/100
