This Spring – Cabernet Franc

Ontario makes great Cabernet Franc wines because Cabernet Franc is Ontario’s best red wine varietal. That’s my Hemingway-esque declarative statement for the day.  I also could have used “It was a good wine because it was an honest wine” – but that seemed dangerously close to plagiarism.

It’s what we drank this weekend with an enormous rack of pork.  Cab Franc has a bit of a vegetal / grassy taste to it that reminds me of new green grass or capers.  This one was also slightly sour or tangy, but the tannins were perfect.
