TN: 2018 Pearl Morissette Violette Cabernet Franc, Niagara.

by Bob Parsons Alberta » Mon Jan 20, 2020 11:00 pm

I have heard good things about this Ontario winery so was keen to try this Cab Franc at a recent do downtown. The owner is from Burgundy and works out of an industrial barn. Now I am a keen CF drinker and really enjoyed the Malivoire 2 yrs ago but this wine did not do it for me. Transparent ruby in color, 11.5% alc, the lightest CF I have ever seen. Violets and blueberry on the nose, light-bodied for sure with some smoke, pepper and dill. Very little tannin and lowish acidity. $40 Cdn..ouch.

I've heard good things too, but have yet to try one of their wines, as everytime I'm in the area they are closed or sold out of wines. Nothing is available in BC. 11.5% is definitely a different take on CF.
