The Cabernet Franc wine grape is well suited to the Niagara Peninsula wine region, and Inniskillin Reserve 2017 Cabernet Franc shows this elegance with fresh and zesty berry flavours, ripe raspberry, earthy florals, cinnamon, pepper spice, dried sweet tobacco with good acidity for food. Pour with barbecued spare ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Aromas of dark cherry and raspberry, along with hints of mocha, cedar, leather and spice. Full bodied on the palate, with some light tannins, and mouthwatering acidity, lovely ripe fruit on the palate with a hint of spice on the finish. Enjoy with any grilled meats.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

The Financial Times of London

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.
