Tawse - 'Growers Blend' - Cabernet Franc - 2019
Niagara, Ontario, Canada
Why we're into this wine: Occasionally, ripe cabernet franc can express a tendency towards fruity sweetness that pushes the wine off balance. Not so with Tawse's Grower's Blend Cabernet Franc, which has been fermented all the way to dryness resulting in zero grams of residual sugar.
This red is savoury and precise with firm tannins, balance and solid structure making it a wonderful candidate for cellaring. What it tastes like: Gorgeous fruit-forward aromatics of cherry, plum and raspberry lead to black fruit, tobacco, green herbs and a wisp of smoke on the palate. Full bodied with noticeable tannins that integrate nicely with decanting.
