At Featherstone, we love Cabernet Franc. This savoury wine with cherry – tobacco aromas, juicy blackberry – raspberry flavours and black pepper accents has enough tannin to keep the sensory banquet lingering. A great match with BBQ, olive – rich Mediterranean foods, or savoury herb – seasoned dishes.

Reviews of the 2016 Cabernet Franc: 

Michael Pinkus   Aug 9, 2018 (****+)
Wow, truly the best Cabernet Franc in recent memory from Featherstone … and they have made some excellent Cabernet Franc over the years; this really does show the consistency of Cabernet Franc in Ontario and what David Johnson is doing at Featherstone. This fruit forward 2016 has loads of black fruit: cherry, berry and even some blueberry notes, plus typical Franc characteristics of tobacco leaf backing it all up – the upfront fruit allows the spice to gently settle in and finishes with cassis and tobacco notes on the long lingering finish … another great job with this grape and so well-priced. Buy a half-dozen – some to cellar, some for now.

The tannin is soft, and smooth – This wine is ready to drink right now without spending any time in a cellar. While it might be interesting to pick up a few bottles of this to see how it might evolve over three to five years, this is a pleasant reminder that not all wines are meant to spend time in a cellar. That’s not a bad thing, and it’s not to say that this wine isn’t complex, and frankly, just pleasant to drink. It’s just a beautiful expression of Cabernet Franc from an outstanding vintage.
