Tawse has been producing single-vineyard Cabernet Franc from the Van Bers vineyard since 2007. This mature vineyard cons
istently yields great examples of Niagara Cabernet Franc and the 2010 vintage is no exception. A reflection of the long and warm growing season, this round yet powerful wine exhibits a rich nose of berry compote, coffee and a hint of mint. Aged 18 months in French oak, it delivers ripe notes ofblackberry, cassis and dark chocolate on the palate, complemented by silky tannins and a lingering finish.
Bold and spicy, this Cabernet Franc begs for hearty dishes to match! Enjoy it with a prime rib roast, barbecued T-bone steaks or rosemary lamb chops.
