Juicy, rich, round and full-bodied cool-climate Cabernet France from Niagara. Lovely interpretation of a wine style Niagara is becoming known for. Fleshy ripe black plums and a savoury long finish. Pair with roast beef.

Cabernet Franc food pairings: pappardelle with rabbit ragu and oyster mushrooms.

Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Taste of Ontario 2018 @ Ottawa - Two Sisters Vineyards is making very high-quality cab franc in the Niagara region. It has the classical vegetal, green pepper, and herb aromas but on the palate, it's lush, med+ body, and great long finish. Compare to the 2013 Cab Franc Reserve, this wine has more fruits and outgoing and can easily pair with many types of dishes.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lush nose of raspberry and mint; silky textured with good juicy acidity, ripe raspberry, black currant and spice with a generous savoury finish. Very enjoyable. Pair with beef shortrib.
In 2013, while Mother Nature challenged the Niagara region, our Cabernet Franc turned out to be a wine to marvel over. Low yields, careful vineyard management and extended hang time into November allowed it to achieve optimal phenolic ripeness and a natural 14.2% alcohol.

This textbook Cabernet Franc shines with brightness and charm. Supple and juicy with earthy aromas of dark fruit, spice, vanilla and savoury dried herbs. It continues with a core of dark cassis and raspberry, with smokey and savoury notes wrapped up in fine, structured tannins. Drink into early 2020. - Winery
