Description

Trail Estate Winery Cabernet Franc Hedonism 2016

Trail Estate Winery Cabernet Franc Hedonism has an enticing dark garnet colour. Exceptionally rich, big and bold. The bouquet opens with rich red and dark fruit, leather and cedar spice, and chocolate aromatics. Full-bodied and complex, with well-integrated soft tannins and a lively acidity. Lots of savoury sharp raspberry, black currant, blueberries, ripe cherry and warm spice flavours emerge on the palate. The dry finish has distinctive notes of chocolate and raspberry.

100% Cabernet Franc from a new vineyard: Wingfield Vineyard – VQA Twenty Mile Bench VQA.

After harvesting and destemming, the fruit goes through inoculation with a yeast strain selected to extract pure fruit. the wine ages in Hungarian (2nd fill) and French (1st fill) oak for 27 months. Bottling without fining or filtering.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

– 89 POINTS

Andre Prioux, andrewinereview.ca – 4 STARS

There is nothing subtle about this wine – having spent 27 months in Hungarian and French oak and then bottled unfiltered and unfined – this is a powerful interpretation of a hot Niagara summer. The aromas and flavours offer red and black fruit in spades. There is also plenty of smoke, leather, and vanilla. Now here comes the challenge with a wine like this – do you enjoy it now, or cellar it? This is definitely structured for a decade to be left alone in a cellar, but the tannin is already soft and integrated if you decide to crush a bottle now.
