CEV - CABERNET FRANC RESERVE 1999

I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Carlo Negri the award winning wine master at Colio Estates Vineyards in Harrow on the north shore of lake Erie. Sampling the wines from the barrels in the cellars and listening as Carlo thoughtfully and with great passion described the development of his works in progress, I was particularly impressed with the CEV Cabernet Franc Reserve.

Rich, expressive fruit, dark berry and light cedar with good length and soft tannins on the finish. We like to serve CEV Cabernet Franc Reserve with our Tuscan roast beef, grilled root vegetables and fennel. CEV Cabernet Franc Reserve is available in most LCBO locations and at all 14 Colio Estates Vineyards retail locations. Check the web sites below for the location nearest you.
