Stratus 2019 Cabernet Franc

Stratus 2019 Cabernet Franc

Stratus

An inviting medium deep purple ruby gives you a sense of what’s to come from this iconic Niagara variety in this remarkable vintage. Cedar, ash, blackberry, dark cherry mingles with liquorice, black olive, and mint leaf. A perfect combination of dense, rich fruit and moderate silky tannins all around a spine of fresh acidity that keeps this wine alive and ultra food friendly. After significant aeration, this bruiser continues to offer dark plum and blackberry with liqueur-like concentration. There is still plenty of attractive wood char, black olive, and liquorice with new aromas of bay, damp earth, and grilled mushroom. The palate has barely moved which is a sign of the power and age-ability of this gem.
