This is a fine value in modern, textbook Niagara cabernet franc. It may not have the depth and polish to score higher, but I love how it avoids sweetness at this commercial price and goes straight to cabernet franc essentials of raspberry, fresh herbs, light tobacco and vague earthiness. It is mid-weight (even at 13.5%) with perfect acid balance and slightly gritty tannin. It delivers a gently rustic, outdoorsy feel that is so very Ontario. The length is very good.

For Cave Spring Vineyard, the compounding effect of four decades of carefully considered decisions has earned the winery the reputation of a proud pioneer, brave enough to try new things, and patient enough to await the rewards revealed with every passing vintage.Their evolution was guided by the selection of the cool-climate varieties to the rigorous commitment to sustainability, the utilization of exclusively indigenous yeasts and neutral oak in the cellars, and the constant crusade for more demanding industry standards.
Recalling the joy his father and son had found tapping into their rural Italian roots to revive a small vineyard in the 1960s, John Pennachetti Sr knew that the original abandoned orchard set against the Niagara Escarpment’s limestone cliffs had the potential to be something so much more for his family. Today, more than four decades after John and his sons took a chance and planted some of Niagara’s first Riesling and Chardonnay vines on that plot of land, Cave Spring Vineyard serves as a constant reminder of the good things that can happen when the past is honoured in forging a new future.
