Cuvée Métis Pinot Noir Cabernet Franc 2016

My first Canadian wine and it is a doozy. Light purple with plenty of fizz to it. This is a wild, untamed wine and you get that message right from the start. The barnyard funk is immediate and deep. Earth and forest woodland is all over this with fresh blueberries and raspberries. The spice is warm and there’s a sense of pine nuts and mushrooms. Wild funky stuff.

Mostly Cabernet Franc with some Pinot Noir from Niagara, this is avant-garde stuff. You could try to write it off as natural, or Beaujolais like, but that doesn’t really cover it. It’s clear that this is the work of someone who knows what the hell they’re doing, absolutely nothing amateurish here. As wild as it is there is nice structure here, this is not at all a lazy wine. Complexity is abundant with menthol and untamed red fruit notes. Sit with this one for a while. Let it breathe, let it speak to you. You will be rewarded. Very unique.

Mystic Pearl Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Central Coast in California. Showing blackberries, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, oak, vanilla, plums, black cherries and light vegetables.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward.

Full bodied with medium acidity and a nice mouthfeel.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins.

Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself. Will age nicely in the next 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle and better with some airtime.

Spicy and tangy. Tasty and easy drinking with mild complexity.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.m by the pool.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$43.

This is a lovely wine with a lot going on. Berry and pepper on the palette and a lovely floral nose. Not really my cup of tea, but very well rendered Cab Franc rose. — 2 months ago
