Black Cab for Sale

This is not the black cab i am talking about

The one i’m referring to is distinctly Canadian.

As far as i’m concerned the Black Cab is an iconic Ontario wine . A blend of around 40% Baco Noir and equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, i’ve argued that it is one of the best blends of Ontario grown grapes. All these grapes are good cold climate grapes and when used well make a great wine. I’m a cheerleader for Ontario Cabernet Franc and i think Baco Noir, when blended like this, makes for a great BBQ wine or a winter sipper.  Black berries and cherries with an earthy undertone – sorry wine descriptor police, that’s about as much “wine code” as i use.

On sale now at the lcbo for $3 off! That’s almost as big a deal as the Crown Royal Northern Harvest [which i’ve yet to find a bottle of]!

$10.95 at an lcbo near you this week.
