Our Showcase Red Shale Cabernet Franc  was made with very limited production from the acclaimed Clark Farm vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This full-bodied wine has firm drying tannins, good structure, moderate acidity and great aging potential. Our 2016 vintage seduces the palate with flavours of currant, blackberry, cocoa, spice and oak. The extra dry, lingering finish offers notes of tangy red and black berries, black tea and cocoa powder.

RED SHALE?
Harvested from our estate owned vineyard, where a ribbon of red shale holds in the moisture and nutrients. Nature’s gift to the vines is supported with heavy leaf thinning to expose the grapes to the sun and leaving them on the vines longer to fully ripen. The gentle slopes, abundant full sunlight and warm intense growing conditions provide rich fruit development in Cabernet Franc.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR 2015 VINTAGE
92 POINTS — "This is one of the finest Niagara cab francs in my view, a single site effort from Clark Farm near the winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, where extra hang time is afforded by the proximity of the lake. ... It is very fragrant with almost creamy black raspberry, subtle dusty herbal notes. It is medium-full bodied, nicely in-filled and elegantly structured with fine tannin. The length is excellent."
David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, March 2018
