Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This black skinned grape is typically blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in Bordeaux but here in Ontario it has become popular as a single varietal.
Featherstone has made a lovely Cab Franc with medium ruby colour and medium+ aromas of cherry, cassis, strawberry, leather, cedar, herbal, black pepper.
The palate is dry with medium acidity, youthful tannins and medium body. Flavours are pronounced and lush. Dark cherry, plum, raisin baked strawberry, cranberry, tobacco leaf, cigar, leather and herbs de Provence. The finish is long and smooth.
Drink now, has potential for ageing another 3-5 years.
Pair with Canadian cheeses, Tortiere, lamb stew, or experiment with pulled pork poutine.

Terry Jeans rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This has some rich red fruit- think cherries and raspberries, with some nice floral notes. It is chewy and dry with a medium intensity. Lamb chops would be perfect with this wine.
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Good intense aromas of plum, raspberry jam and spice, some green bell pepper. Flavours similar with nice tannins.

Featherstone Winery Cabernet Franc 2012 is worth a try. It features aromas of cherry, tobacco and spice that carry through to the palate. (88/100) Tasted July 14, 2014
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Raspberry, black cherry and that signature Cab-Franc green-ness. In addition, there's tart cherry in the taste and a bit of spiciness. The tannins have an edge too them but it doesn't take away. Nice with a beef stew and some roast vegetables.
