2014 Redstone cab franc

Every now and then my hobbies overlap. In this case I was down in Niagara to paddle Jordan Harbour in my Kayak. Afterwards I was hungry so slipped over to Redstone’s patio for lunch and some tasting. I had previously stopped by Redstone and was impressed so decided to stop by again and was rewarded. They have a lovely patio and I chose this wine to go with Elk Stroganoff. Both were positively delicious. Staff on the patio were attentive and knowledgeable.

Inky dark in color with a lovely expressive cab franc nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with lovely varietal cab franc flavors. This is a spot on, well made bold wine. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely tanins and bright acidity. It paired perfectly with the elk. I would give it -89. $39.95 at the winery. Unfortunately when I went into the tasting bar it was stupid busy, staff were distracted and not able to answer questions, so I didn’t get a chance to try any others 🙁
