Wine Tasting NotesCabernet Franc is an unlikely, but interesting candidate for Icewine.

This shows the black currant flavor typical of the grape, but also a vegetal note. Moderately sweet, with tangy acidity, it's an appealing if unusual dessert style. Drink now.
A Cabernet Franc wine from Ontario in Canada. 2006 Inniskillin Cabernet Franc Icewine 375ml
Smells like Cabernet Franc, yet this is sweet and mouthcoating. An interesting interpretation of ice wine, with berry, black currant and honey flavors on a soft structure. A touch cloying on the finish. Drink now.
Consider this a rare opportunity to try Cabernet Franc as an ice wine. This is rich and complex with concentrated aromas of eucalyptus, strawberries, cranberries, spices and herbs. Taste fine winemaking from our neighbors to the north.
Sweet berry jam and cinnamon notes highlight this red dessert style. On the soft side, with a citrus tang on the finish, keeping it clean and long. Drink now through 2015.
