Tania Thomas rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Vinified from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes harvested at Henry of Pelham’s Short Hills Bench vineyards, comes this intense and lushes Icewine. Abundant aromas and flavours of sweet ripe strawberries and raspberries with a touch of spice. Well balanced acidity and a long, smooth. It stands on its own perfectly as an after-supper-sipper or paired with with dark chocolate desserts.

Natalie's Review

Henry of Pelham Winery Cabernet Icewine 2013, Short Hills Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: Dive into this gorgeous Niagara icewine with its raspberry preserves and strawberry-rhubarb jam aromas and flavours. The luscious red berry nuances come from the red wine grape base Cabernet Franc. It's an exotic treat that pairs well with darker, richer desserts than do the riesling and vidal-based icewines, though this one has just as much balancing acidity to avoid being cloying. Think chocolate cake. Rich and long and satisfying. Drink: 2013-2018. 672402 10% S 200 mL  $39.95 Score: 92/100. November 22, 2014 Top Rated Dessert Wine. Divine Dessert Wine  Full Review

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.
