Hailing the Black Cab

Drank another great local wine this weekend.  Eastdell’s Black Cab is a blend of Baco Noir, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon – arguably (and I am willing to argue with anyone on this) 3 of the best red wine varietals that grow in Ontario.

42% Baco Noir, 27% Cab Franc, and 31% Cabernet Sauvignon – dark fruits from the Baco, a green grass acidity from the Franc, depth and tannins from the Cab Sav.  This is a great wine!

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Black Cab™ is crafted from varieties that grow well in Niagara’s cool climate: Baco Noir and Cabernet. Crimson in colour showing aromas of dark berry fruits, vanilla, raspberry, cranberry and spice on the nose. Deep brooding dark fruit characters typical of Baco Noir are present on the palate with black cherry and blackberry flavours, bright tannins and great balance. Drink now or cellar for 3-4 years.
