|Lynn Van Der Linde rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
An absolutely magnificent Cabernet Franc!
Heady aromas of leather, eucalyptus, and floral undertones that carry through on the palate with a spicy black cherry finish.
Perfect with beef dishes or robust pizzas.
Tasted Sept 2017.

Prince Edward County wineries do Cabernet Franc well - and the Grange is no exception. A lovely medium bodied wine with aromas of red cherry, smoke, leather and tobacco. Tannins are present but not overwhelming. The perfect trio of fruit, tannins and acidity. Grown on a plateau on the deepest soils at the winery that once grew alfalfa. 36 months in neutral oak. The Grange is consistently using neutral oak to let the fruit shine through. A lovely dry - 2.3 g/l sugar medium bodied wine. Tasted October 2017

Black cherry, red plum skin, grilled herb, sweet earth, and a hint of smoke. 92 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
An incredibly aromatic and savoury Cab Franc from the County offering up ripe berry, cherry, blueberry and currant leaf aromas. On the palate, more cherry/berry, spice, voilet, earth and blackcurrant leaf flavours, fine, grippy tannins and brittle acidity. Very moreish. Would be spectacular paired with wild mushroom and proscuitto risotto.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, the nose is a bit closed showing some red berry and herbal notes. FMedium bodied and fresh on the palate with light raspberry and cherry fruit, floral tones and fine drying tannins on a savoury finish.
Tasted Nov, 2017
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:|
Red fruit and earth.…
Presentation: Plain, simple, label
Appearance: Medium ruby
Nose: Medium nose, with notes of cranberry juice, red cherry
Taste: Dry, medium body, high acidity, sharp, noticeable tannins, with notes of green, unripened fruit, ink, and dirt
Finish: Medium red fruit and earth
Overall impression: A wine with an interesting nose, and a more complex taste profile, but still rather one-dimensional overall. We did not get the typical green pepper notes.
