Reviews and Ratings

Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very attractive earthy notes with jammy black fruit and roasted almonds - I am quite amazed by the quality of Cab Franc that you can find in Ontario nowadays. And Queylus is no exception! Rich on the palate and very true to the natural characteristics of a Cab Franc: Bell pepper, red plum, and strawberry. This wine has good, balanced acidity and is full bodied and rich. Have with a roasted or grilled rack of lamb - pairing it with a heavy, beefy dish will only enhance the qualities of the wine!
From Lincoln Lakeshore, Niagara Peninsula wine region, Domaine Queylus Tradition 2016 Cabernet Franc is ripe raspberry, cassis, fine dried herbs and flinty mineral flavours finishing long on the palate -- a Cab Franc with great finesse. - 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.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
