|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This producer puts a strong emphasis on reds, in their premium tier. Their iteration of Cabernet Franc in 2013 sees only American oak. Most of their reds, and previous years of this wine, saw a regimen of French, American, or Hungarian.
The colour is a bright inviting ruby, with some slight bricking already.
The aromas are full of currant, dried herbs, dried leaves, and cranberries. There is a whap of coconut from the oak, as well.
The aromas are dominated by red fruit that I feel are better supported by the American oak. Craisin, raspberry, mushroom, earth, chocolate, and a slight toasted walnut quality.
Well made, with a charming rusticity about it. It is pretty and rather gentle after a few minutes open. Try not to keep it too long, but enjoy it with roasted parsnips and maybe some game sausages.
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby in the glass, lots of herb, spice, peppers, dried currants, and oak on the nose. Medium to full body - lots of oak, herb and dried berries on the palate and . Would pair well with herb crusted lamb.

The Magnotta Winery Limited Edition Cabernet Franc 2013 is amazing value under $20. Tasty red berry fruit, earthy, vanilla, and spice. Tasted October 2016 (90/100)
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, and fairly closed with subtle aromas of dusty dried currants and black cherry, with a bit of dried herbs. The taste is a different matter with a commanding taste of tart black cherry, accompanied by high acidity and grippy fine tannins. Very little if any of the usual Cab Franc Green-ness. This is a Cabernet Franc done very well.

Red currant aromatics and on the palate, along with herbal touches and vanilla.
Tasted Oct. 2016
