    • Big Cab Franc, big meat, big BBQ—isn’t this what summer’s all about?

      Tastes like
      An elegant whopper (no, not the burger). Bursting with generous red and black fruit, sweet tobacco, fragrant herbs like marjoram and thyme and some peppery zip. Heck, just pour it on your steak!
      Drink with
      Big meat or anything with a nice char. Pulled pork will do the trick. Put that spicy edge to work on some beef carpaccio, tartare, charcuterie, or a meaty dish of osso buco. Don’t skimp—get the best lamb you can find.
      Good for
      Celebrating summer with good friends and a long, wide-ranging dinner—this wine will keep on impressing as the night unfolds.


      Why we're drinking this
      Full marks to the folks at the brand-new Redstone Winery, where Moray Tawse and his team put quality first, time and time again. Biodynamic viticulture and the natural winemaking practices create wines of superb character and presence. Positioned on 38-acres of mineral-rich red clay and stony soils, this new winery is poised for greatness. One sip this Cabernet Franc will tell you why. You can taste the dedication to non-interventionist winemaking, the concentration and expression. Important, as well, is the winery’s location in one of the warmest regions around Beamsville, resulting in superb ripeness for this late-ripening variety.

      Tasting Note
      Heralded in Bordeaux and the Loire for its remarkable food-matching qualities, Cabernet Franc makes deeply charming wines with seemingly endless personalities. They can be great sippers or formidable powerhouses. The Redstone version lies on the elegant side of the scale, with a generous mouthfeel that begs to be savoured. At the same time, it’s got the structure to go with a serious feast. “Full-bodied, with firm tannins and lots of length,” notes Lindsay Groves. Zoltan Szabo calls it “textbook Cabernet Franc, with cranberry, currant, red plum and tobacco, along with herbaceous notes of sage and marjoram.”
