Cabernet Franc, 12% alcohol, no sulfur, drink quickly or store in the dark. Nose: earthy, skunky Palate: a bit tannic, green, woody, cherry. Very nice wine, but so light bodied . It unexpectedly went well with green chile chicken enchiladas.
Very spicy on the nose, aromas of red and green peppers, bell pepper and hints of barnyard and tobacco. The wine is still quite young and needs time to open up. Powerful, with structure and freshness. The tannins are still a bit bumpy and dry though.
nice cab franc nose, but a total blank on the palate, even after decanting. drank over three hours, and nada. should have closed it up and put it away for another day, but certainly should have gotten something in the time i spent with it. good weight and tannins, no flavor. (no score)
Pop up and pour. Served at 16°C, Nose of blackberries, ash, and a pleasant presumption of roundness. But mouth opposite and rough : freshness, crunchy red fruits, and immediatly a green acidity going to unbalanced , rustic tannins at the end. A wine unripe, or to young, but I doubt that balance could improve with time. Don't buy.
