    January 10, 2016 - Lovely perfumed nose. Impeccably balanced. Firing on all cylinders now.

    January 1, 2016 - Decanted an hour. Dark cherry, cassis, tobacco with medium body and finish. Drinking well at its peak.

    January 1, 2016 - In a great place right now. Took 2 hrs to open and was better on the second night. Great wine.

    November 28, 2015 - WnTed cheese after dinner and all we had was a Stilton style blue which I thought would be an awkward pair but did the win ever pop! Purple and opaque. Very dense nose and less floral than I'd expect from a cab franc. Nose of cherries, raspberries, chocolate, vanilla and a hint of sage. The mouth feel is enveloping with soft tannins, balanced acidity, full mouthfeel and and rolling sour cherry finish. I would have guessed a blend or can save rather than a 15.6% cab franc. 5+12+17+8=92

    July 19, 2015 - Not sure what happened since I last tasted this but the flavor profile of this was not at all enjoyable to me. It developed a spearmint / minty middle that created a bit of burning sensation for me which I really didn't like. Others didn't find this as noticeable but to me this is all I could focus on. Just noticed another note with a eucalyptus descriptor and this is accurate since it sort of had the feel of a hall's cough drop.
