2019 Cabernet Franc — Foxcroft Vineyard

2019 Cabernet Franc — Foxcroft Vineyard

Trail Estate Winery

91 Points “This wine has a deep, dense nose of cassis, anise, forest berries, pepper, undergrowth, savoury spices and subtle stemmy, pyrazine notes. It’s rich and savoury on the palate and loaded with savoury dark berries leather, spice, plums, minty herbs, and nervy acidity keeping it lifted and fresh on the finish. Will age nicely for 5+ years.” Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com Fruit was hand harvested from the Foxcroft Vineyard. Destemmed and fermented naturally with punchdowns with about 1 month maceration. Pressed and racked to barrel to age for 19 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with only minimal sulphur. This wine is all dark fruits — wild berry, cassis, liquorice and spice. Juicy now in its young form, this should evolve beautifully over the next decade. Bold and perfumed with leather, menthol and black pepper on the nose. The palate is full with bright acidity, medium grained tannins and a lingering finish. This wine will drink best if decanted or aged for a few years. Best drinking is 2023-2026.
