Salton Classic Cabernet Franc 201

I saw this wine one on the latest Vintages release. It caught my eye because it was from Brazil. So I bought it. Dark in color with a fruity nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays lots of fruity notes, red fruits to match the nose. Some strawberries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some acidity and some tannins. This is not a great wine. If I had more I would return them. Honestly it reminded me of one of those kit wines your friends arrive with they made themselves and go on about how good it is … and cheap! Just add water 🙁

From the LCBO web site:
Salton Classic Cabernet Franc 2012—VINTAGES#: 363515 | 750 mL bottle
STYLE – Medium-bodied & Fruity
Deep ruby in the glass, with aromas of blackberry, tobacco, cassis, coffee and leather. Supple, with nice replays and ripe fruit. The tannins provide structure but do not overwhelm. Enjoy this with grilled chicken or barbecued sausages. (VINTAGES panel, May 2013)
