April 5, 2017 - Pretty ruby red. Almost equal blend of red and black fruit, strong alcohol, and something that reminds me of a diluted oregano essential oil. Raspberries on the front palate, brief strawberries at the mid palate, and almost artificial vanilla and red fruit notes into the finish with a dusting of potpourri. Very nice expression of the varietal.
October 14, 2016 - While I would never guess this was 100% Cab Franc in a blind tasting, I thought this wine was delicious. Paired with grilled NY Strips. Lost notes but should have bought more of this. 93-94.

September 13, 2016 - Much improved the second day open from a relatively lean start. Opaque with an inch pour with purple bubbles on the surface. A rich nose with black plum, blackberry, violets, and forest floor. The sip begins moderately soft and swirling the wine in the mouth brings out a delicious juicy black cherry as well as an undertow of firm and dry tannin. The swallow is more leather textured with a light green pepper, and firmly astringent tannin. Overall, a very promising wine from high altitude mountain vineyards to hold longer in hope that the tannin will soften, integrate, and release its grip on the fruit.
May 21, 2016 - Really dull and uninteresting at this point in its life. Nothing left that would make you think that this was CF, drinks more like a typical boring CS.
