Delicious! 12% Gamay. The Cab Franc green pepper notes really come through too. And spices. And some funk but in a good way — although your mileage may vary.

Ontario meets Loire; blend of Pinot Noir / Cabernet Franc 50/50. Exactly as it should be. Fresh, alive. Wine program BTG (if I had one :)

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.

Medium-body. Plum. Soil. Robust. Impressive for an Ontarian red.
