Very nice Cab Franc but not real big for mountain fruit. No herbal/vegetal flavors to worry about as with so many cab franc. Good balance and soft right now with still some good grip but would drink all you have right now.
Like a lighter Cabernet Sauvignon, nice cherry fruit, a hint of oak, slightly hot on the finish. Perhaps not 100% integrated yet and maybe better down the line? I set some of this aside in a half bottle and came back three days later. It has really evolved; still a bit light, but showing a lot more fruit, very inviting floral/vanilla nose and extra smooth. Raised rating from 88 to 90. Make sure to decant this a few hours or wait a couple years.
