|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Such a great price point on this wine ($14.95 in the LCBO!) This wine is a Meritage-type blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Cab Franc (40%) and Merlot (15%). Aromas are a nice blend of ripe plum, dried cherry leather and warm spice. Smooth tannins on the palate, and very approachable. Nice acidity to balance and carry through the flavours and lengthen out the finish. If you like an easy drinking red, with a teeny bit of RS but not sweet, then this is what you're looking for! Enjoy with all of your summer BBQ fare like ribs, or even braised meat dishes during cooler months.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Sue-Ann staff is not only a fantastic stopoff in Niagara (and her Riesling remains on eof the top in the area).
Medium ruby, with purple accents.
Aromatics are highly floral, with plum and blackberry. Ripeness on Cabs in Niagara is key. Damson, blackberry, red pepper jelly, boisenberry, and tobacco.
Flavours are good. More plum, blackberry, and vanilla.
If you visit her Niagara Peninsula winery, you'll be greeted by her firendly Bernese, Brix.
He often adorns each of her bottles somewhere too
Save it for 3 years, or drink now. Pair it with roast veggies - the classic for Ontario Cab Franc blends.
|Sue-Ann Staff Fancy Farm Girl Flamboyant Red (2015) is a mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a smattering of Cabernet Franc red wine blend from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. On the nose the wine is ripe black plums and mocha. Owner and winemaker Sue-Ann Staff says "a love of the farm life inspired the name." The Staff family have been growing grapes on their 200-year-old farm for over a century. - Community Wine Reviews|
