    August 23, 2014 - Really enjoyed this wine. Short decant but still big fruit on the nose. Lots of purple blue fruit on the palate and great mouthfeel and finish. Wish I had more.

    March 29, 2014 - This is a fantastic Cab Franc. Was clearly still too early when the cork was popped so we decanted it. After an hour, the nose of ripe red and black fruit, violets, and spices became evident. After 2 hours, it had really opened up and was extremely impressive with its balance, complexity, and length. Because it's still so young, there was much more fruit than leather, but it was a fantastic bottle and one that will only get better with a few more years. I'm looking forward to trying it again with another bottle in a year or two. Highly recommended.

    March 15, 2014 - My wife and I have become huge fans of WA cab franc and Sheridan does it very well. It took a while to open fully, but certainly worth the wait. Deep aroma of fruit to start, well balanced and good acidity. Great with food.

    February 24, 2014 - Way more fruit than the last bottle! I was concerned after reading the WA guy's ratings last year that Sheridan would never develop fruit and boy was he wrong! This wine opened up in less than an hour and was great with steak and trimmings. Amazing QPR on this wine.

    December 8, 2013 - Decanted two hours. A supple and elegant beast of a wine. Text book cab franc. Great deep violet color, inky and teeth staining. Cherries and cedar on the nose. Violets, cherries, cedar and a hint of leather. It will age well, I would like revisit in a few years when the tannins settle down.
