2012 McGregor Vineyards Reserve Cab Franc

Back in the summer we took a trip down to the finger lakes and I was impressed enough to buy a number of wines at the winery. This is one of those. Dark in color with a nice smooth red berry nose. On the mid pallet the wine matches the nose with lovely bold rich rd berry notes, a traditional fruit forward cab franc. There’s a hint of sweetness on the tongue. On the medium length finish the wine displays some smooth tannins along with some nice dryness. This is a nice well made cab franc. I would give it an 89 or so. We paired it with a tenderloin steak and it went very well. Yum. $24.95 a bottle at the winery (not in the LCBO). If your in the area of the finger lakes be sure and stop in at McGregor. Their wine tasting room is eclectic and unique. With picnic tables and courteous staff wandering around with bottles of wine for you to sample. And to top it off you walk away with a McGregor wine glass as a keep sake!

From the back of the bottle:
This estate frown Cab Franc is a medium bodied dry and complex wine. Aromas and flavors of raspberry, cherry, cedar and hints of oak mingle with soft tannins and lead to a long lingering finish. Our reserve designation is used on a wine that displays outstanding varietal character, balance and superior quality.
