    July 14, 2016 - Can Franc really shines through with peppery notes. Should be decanted for an hour or two before enjoying.

    October 9, 2015 - Our last bottle of half a case. The nose is still sharp and young even 2 hours after opening, but the palate is becoming much softer. If we had more would drink them soon.

    August 28, 2015 - Amazingly young (looking an tasting) for a '99. Much lighter than most Viader wines.

  • Ridgerunner Likes this wine: (94 points)

    August 21, 2015 - This wine contains 61% Cab S & 39% Cab F. We really enjoy what the Cab F brings to this rich and enduring blend!
