Dark ruby color. Had thrown a lot of sediment in the bottle. A bit too oaky but overall a flavorful wine with good body, and if you didn't mind the oak, vodkas balance. But in any case, a very good deal!
Delightful, ready to drink now, needs about an hour air time, or shake the bottle and wait 30 min. Aromas of berries and wild herb, in the mouth a balance of deep not excessive red and dark berry, stone fruit (agree with dark plum below), vegetal, and light mineral (mix of stone and salty mineral). Medium finish. 100% cab franc. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium or lower. Very good QPR at USD 17.
