    September 26, 2014 - drinking really well at the moment - solid example of a well-aged cab franc - will pleasantly surprise affcianados in blind taste test

    July 13, 2014 - Went well with NY strip. Nice mountain fruit. Worth $50, but not 60.

    April 20, 2014 - Tried another bottle tonite after the bad one last night. Decanted - and this bottle much better. Still a little funky on the nose, but overall a pretty good wine. A bit musty on the nose and some tannins in the glass. Old smoky dark berries, maybe a bit on pencil lead or graphite.
