Great value VQA Niagara. This red wine won SILVER All Canadian Wine Awards. An attractive and familiar Cab Franc nose of strawberry, raspberry, fresh green pepper, pepper, perfume. The palate is dry with some grippy tannins - let it open up a little. Flavours of black cherry, leather, black earth and fresh herbs entertain the mouth. Good length with a smoke and cherry finish. Enjoy over the next 3 years. Pair with game meat, roasted red meat, BBQ burger.
Kacaba Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2011, V.Q.A., Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada: Many people about Cabernet Sauvignon for cheddar, but I love a great Canadian Cabernet Franc. This one has a nose of savoury dried herbs and a touch of bell pepper that often accompanies Cabernet Franc, though not unpleasant at all. Full-bodied and smooth with fleshy black plums and a good finish. I'd pair this wine with Balderson Vintners' Cheddar for Red Wine, which is made with robust red wines in mind. Full disclosure: Balderson is a sponsor of the Canadian Wine Match, but I've been enjoying their cheeses for years. This wine really opens up after 1 hour of decanting.
