2019 Cabernet Franc

2019 Cabernet Franc

Leaning Post Wines

The 2019 vintage had a cool start and stayed moderate throughout.  The sunny, warm-but-never-hot weather continued well into harvest and allowed us to hang the grapes very late into the season, giving plenty of time to fully ripen.  On the nose raspberry, blackcurrant, strawberry and blackberry immediately appear, followed quickly by tomato-leaf, roasted red-pepper, cured meat, cigar-box, cocoa and cumin. The palate shows lovely balance but is a bit more brooding, with blueberry appearing along with cassis and blackberry playing off leather, tobacco and smoked-sausage with a mossy/brambly character the underpins the whole wine. Elegance and exquisite finesse meet richness, with present tannins giving this wine immense structure and agebility.  We continue to raise the bar for Cabernet Franc in Niagara, and this is another great example that call easily age 8-10 years. To drink now, decant well in advance and the wine will really unfold for you!
