Cocoa, blackberries, mint and tart cherry notes on the palette. Juicy cab franc. High acidity balanced with good length. A delight with steak.

@sumacridgewine Black Sage Cab Franc. Floral. Black cherry. Fig. Cocoa dust. Silky. Shows the potential for the grape in warmer sites #wbc13

Big berries in the beginning, and a nice peppery bite. Delish!

Continues to be my favourite Canadian wine. Spectacular Cabernet Franc with abundant blackBerry, black currant, stewed plum, green pepper and a hint of cedar and fennel. Very dry and paired perfectly with our grilled striploin.

Deep sweet cherry before the tannins slap you in the face and leave a dry finish

Nice subtle cherry & tobacco notes. Dull flavour that is making its way to my heart.
