Shari’s Pick. Cave Spring Cabernet Franc, 2017, VQA

It makes me very proud to try an Ontario wine and be blown away!

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure to try, Cave Spring Cabernet Franc, 2017, VQA.

It was smooth and balanced with a soft lingering finish. Why was I so surprised? Cabernet Franc is a varietal that needs to be ripe when picked to create a wine such as this. In my experience, when Cabernet Franc is produced from grapes picked too early, or couldn’t fully mature due to the vintage, the resulting wine tastes very astringent and is not a pleasant experience.

Hats off to Cave Spring Cellars! Cave Spring Cabernet Franc, 2017, VQA is delicious and at $17.95, represents excellent value.
