2007 Inniskillin Reserve Cab Franc

I’ve expounded on a number of occasions about Niagara Cab Francs. I love them. Well this one is no exception. Reserve is a term which generally means the wine was kept in barrels aging longer. Inniskillin is in Niagara on the Lake which tends to make softer reds when compared to wines from the Jordan area. Dark in color with a lovely varietal nose of cab franc, red berries along with some noticeable alcohol. On first note the wine was in need of some breathing in spite of it’s age. After a bit of time the fruit comes out quite nicely some nice red berries along with some noticeable oak and alcohol. The wine is medium in length in finish with some soft tannins coming through. This is a nice wine for sure, I would give it an 89 or so. We paired it with a BBQ salmon and it went very nicely. The softer nature of the Niagara on the lake wines goes well with red fish. Yumm. It sells now for $21.95 which for a reserve is not a bad price!
