WineDiva's Review

Classic, fresh, spicy.
Consistently a classic example of Cabernet Franc, this Les Epinats 2017 is leaner than last vintage, offering red currents and cranberry, green peppercorns and fresh herbs, with spice and bacon fat. It's medium-bodied, fresh and spicy with flavours of tealeaf, tart red fruit and mixed greens.
A wine made better with food and with a slight chill.

WineDiva is my alter ego. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to my very serious passion for all things wine. It is my goal to make wine fun, to make this website subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs beware, this WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and making it her own! Care to join me?
