Reviews and Ratings

Janet Holden rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This Niagara Cabernet Franc has aromas of ripe raspberries, cherries, cedar and herbs like rosemary and oregano. It is a very food friendly wine with balanced tannins. It would pair well with BBQ beef, pork, hard cheeses and wood oven pizza.
Tawse Laundry Vineyard 2016 Cabernet Franc is an earthy, cool-climate, organically-grown Cab Franc fragrant with jammy raspberry, red berry and toasty oak aromas on the nose. Fleshy and vibrant with ripe raspberry, dried berry, vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are pleasantly grippy. Enjoy with a meat-lover's pizza or herbed goat cheese on baguette. Very versatile. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews
