Thirty Bench, Small Lot Cabernet Franc, Beamsville Bench, Ontario - Niagara Peninsula, Canada, 2015
Small Lot Cabernet Franc
Platinum - Best in Show: Best in Show
100% Cabernet Franc
Deep ruby-purple in colour, with fresh, fine-drawn, beautifully ripened fruits expressed with great purity and poised charm. The oak is restained enough to allow that superb fruit its aromatic head. On the palate, this is a wholly successful Cabernet Franc: brilliant definition, ripeness and freshness without either green tones or the dryness which comes with excessive ripeness for this variety: bravo. 2018-2025.
