91 points ""Touches of smoke, rubber, tar, spice, cherry fruits and much more on the nose give way to a solid expression of Niagara Cabernet Franc. It finishes a little earthy, but it's delicious and should complement a variety of barbecued meats or roasts. The nose is all about mocha-blackberry-cherry, vanilla, cassis preserve and cigar-box cedar. On the palate the rich fruits meld nicely with the charred oak, roasted vanilla bean and plush tannins."
