Reviews and Ratings

John Rasenberg and his wife, Sue Ann, chose the name Dark Horse in part for their love of horses and in part for their appreciation of the outsider. This is a lovely Cabernet Franc Icewine from the Niagara Peninsula wine region with strawberries and sweet spice on the nose and palate. Serve chilled and pair with a dark chocolate mousse. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
