2007 Vineland Estates Cab Franc Reserve

I love Niagara Cab Francs. They really do them well, and varietally. So when I was at the winery a couple years back I grabbed this one. I’m not easily swayed into spending $40 a bottle but this one was lovely. So the other night I decided I had to crack this one. Dark in color with a nice nose of red berries. On the mid pallet the fruit still has some life to it with red berries coming through quite nicely. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely smooth tannins and very nice dryness. There some nice complexity in the mouth. Straight out of the bottle there’s some noticeable alcohol on the finish but this fades quickly. I really enjoyed this wine. We paired it with a BBQ striploin along with Freekeh (I’ve been exploring some of the fad grains lately) and some grilled zucchini and it went very well. I would give this wine a 90-91. Yummy.
