Coyote's Run Estate Winery 2008 Black Paw Vineyard Cabernet Franc (Four Mile Creek) Niagara Peninsula - Ontario

Availability: Direct from winery
Cost: $21.95
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: August 6th, 2010

Tasting Notes: From fruit grown exclusively on their Black Paw Vineyard (dark Toledo clay loam), this Coyote's Run Cabernet Franc offers impressive concentration of aromas and flavours for the tough 2008 vintage. Intense aromas of red fruit, baking spice and black tea with earthy and green vegetal notes on the nose. The dry palate has integrated tannins with good acidity and concentrated flavours of plum, blueberry and anise. A slightly chalky texture in the mouth with a moderate-plus finish. Nicely balanced. Drink 2010-2014.
