13th Street Essence Cabernet Franc 2011
The Essence series of wines at 13th Street was designed with winemaker Colas in mind, a 'signature series' of wines that would capture the heart and soul of the vineyards and vintage from which they came, with Colas's special signature style evident in the finished product. The wines were developed to clearly express Colas's winemaking philosophy - one of minimalist intervention, natural and patient winemaking with wines crafted based on aroma, taste and texture not numbers from a lab report. These wines are made from only those varieties that showed exceptional potential in the vineyard and cellar and only in those vintages that permitted such excellence. The nose of this Cab Franc is a treat - smoky, swirling spices to go with sweet cherry pie, plums, blueberry, black currants, cigar leaf and violets. It's ripe and concentrated in the mouth, a big wine to be sure, with meaty, lavish fruit and grippy tannins but the lush fruits and spice are never overshadowed by the oak. A well done Cab Franc that will need time to be fully appreciated. Score - 92. (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Dec. 3, 2013)
