Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lots of ripeness on this CF offering loads of black fruit on the nose. On the palate, a seam of dryness along with a full flavour style with a balancing amount of oak which arrives mid palate and lingers.
From the Niagara wine region and Diamond Estates, Backyard Vineyards' Nosey Neighbour 2015 is and easy to enjoy Cabernet Franc and easy on the pocket book as well. This vintage was given Honours and Best Value at InterVin 2017. Look for ripe black and blueberries with dark plum and a hint of mint flavours on the palate. Pair with a backyard barbeque, of course. - Community Wine Reviews
