Megalomaniac To Be Franc Cabernet Frank 2019

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaFrom their estate vineyard, this was handpicked over 4 stages, with each tranche fermented separately and rested 6 months in barrels prior to the final blend. Post blend, it returned to barrel for a year's rest (23% new wood). The wood is super evident upon first whiff, with toasted spices and cedar and vanilla. That's all quickly absorbed into the concentrated red cherry, plum, and baking spices on the dense palate. Tannins are chewy and the palate is a bit sinewy, all calling for a pairing with grilled beef or pork dishes.Tasted: 02 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
