Rosewood Estates 2016 Cabernet Franc, Renaceau Vineyard

From the hot 2016 vintage that everyone is talking about comes this Beamsville Bench single vineyard Franc – and not surprising Rosewood decided to go the neutral oak route (all French) for 18 months to allow the fruit to shine and not be over-shadowed by wood. They also went with wild ferments, whole cluster press and full malolactic … the results speak for themselves as big blackberry and cassis fruit reigns supreme while smoky, herbal and tobacco follow to the finish.  Price: $39.95 – Rating: ****+
