Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Inniskillin Cabernet Franc Icewine 2019

The red berry characteristics of the vinifera grape Cabernet Franc translate as an Icewine into strawberry like aromas and flavors. This Icewine is completely different from the white Icewines. The color comes from pressing only as there is no skin contact during fermentation. The earlier it is harvested, the darker the color and the deeper the flavors.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Published 13th May 2021 - Rated 94:
The 2019 Cabernet Franc Icewine comes in with 265 grams of residual sugar, 9.6 of total acidity and 9.5% alcohol. This was bottled in January of 2021. This is probably the most distinctive of the winery's offerings because of that Cabernet Franc base. You won't mistake it for anything else—the pink-red color will give you a heads up before you see the label or taste it. Yes, you can tell on tasting it too—there are hints of herbs and a touch of charred green veggies, even if mostly subdued by the ice wine process and the sugar, to go with the typical unctuousness of the brand. I really liked the difference this year, as this showed off its personality as well as some of its freshness. The price references a half bottle. - Mark Squires

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 9/1/2021 - Rated 95:
Cabernet Franc, both still and sweet, is a rising star in eastern Canada. As an ice wine it's rare and distinctive, aromatic and focused. Honey, molasses, caramel, bubble tea, sweet tobacco, candied apricot, blueberry and blackberry jam mark the dizzying mix of flavors. There's enough tannin to cut through, and this very special wine makes a splendid dessert all by itself. PAUL GREGUTT
