Reviews and Ratings

Cave Spring 2020 Cabernet Franc is produced from estate grown grapes and is amazing value at $20. Dry, medium-plus-bodied and fresh on the nose and palate with bright plum, raspberry, cherry, bell pepper and well-integrated oak spice flavours smooth and rounded on the palate. Tannins are plushy and long. A very juicy Cab Franc from the Beamsville Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region. - Community Wine Reviews
