I was visiting Canada for seven weeks this summer and the Tinhorn Creek Cabernet Franc was one of the highlites of my trip. Discovered in a small town wine shop, with limited selection, this wine was a hit for me. The juicy ripe red fruit flavours with a hint of spice was just right for sipping on the deck or pairing with a grilled bit of beef. Good value and great taste!

I am new to reds but tried this at tasting at the winery then, loved it so much had it at the restaurant with their pizza and bought 2 bottles! Rich and sumptuous, decedent and full of notes! Love it!

We hosted our wedding at Tinhorn Creek in 2013 and this was one of the wines we chose to serve. It is incredibly flavourful but not overpowering. Love!
