At Stratus, our vineyard's voice is defined as much by the soils underfoot, as the shifting weather patterns above. Our Weather Report series is ever-changing - each wine, an individual snapshot of a growing season.

The inaugural Cabernet Franc of the Weather Report series, and a serious wine with a drink now attitude! Expect to find intense big black fruit aromatics and flavours of blackcurrant, cassis, and dark cherry, mixing with spice notes of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla. Very ripe texture, fresh acidity, and chewy tannins carry the palate to a long finish that sneaks in some red fruit character along the lines of holiday cranberry sauce.
