      Tastes like

      An intriguing melody of fresh berries, cherry, plum and earthy tones with hints of tobacco and mushroom. Intense, rich and generous, with firm tannins and a long finish.

      Pairs with
      This wine is simply delicious, it pairs well with all kinds of dishes: braised lamb shank, rich pot roast, beef stew, and roast poultry. Dark chocolate too, so do not limit yourself.
      Good for

      Settling a “which is better” debate, pitting Cabernet Sauvignon against Cabernet Franc.

      Why we're drinking this

      Not only is Cabernet Franc a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon — and therefore deserving of more respect — it also grows and performs far better in the cool climate of Ontario. Cab Franc is one of the wines that Ontario does best, partly because we have the limestone soils in which it thrives. We love Cab Franc on its own, where it’s personality can really shine. Cab Franc loves Ontario and we love Cab Franc. Oh, yeah, it’s also made by Tawse, hands down one of the finest wineries in the world, and organic too.

  • Tasting note

    Supple texture with generous fruit — blackberry, raspberry, blueberry and cassis. Intense and spicy, full-bodied, with firm tannins. Delicious — it’s so easy to just keep sipping away. This is a textbook profile of great Cab Franc. For wine, this intense and dramatic to also be such a joy to drink right now is a tribute to winemaker Paul Pender.
