Featherstone 2010 Cabernet Franc
Heed my advice here when I tell you to run … don’t walk, don’t trot, don’t quick step, and thisis not the time to skip … I do mean run down to Niagara to get yourself a case of the best Cabernet Franc value in the province. The nose is cherry and raspberry with a touch of smoke and hint of vanilla … but that does not quite prepare you for the palate which is full-on juicy with black cherry and sweet cranberry, along with tobacco / cigar-spice backing … and yet there is so much more going on. Complex, intense and to put it simply: a lovely wine made from a great vintage at an incredible price. The finish will have you wondering why you bought only one case. It’ll be in Vintages come September but you’ll want to get your hands on some before the crowd and start enjoying it now (or hold 7+ years). Price: $16.95 – Rating: **** ½+
