  • Solid 92. Wish I had more of this. Please see previous note. This Franc has turned deeper than a lot of Cab Sauvignons. Very nice. Silky. Nice sweet finish, fully integrated, minimal tannin. Very nice wine. This is the last one of these that I have, and it's right at the top of the curve now. I think this one has more longevity than 2016 -- think this one will hold on until 2018 with proper cellaring.

  • See notes on pahlmeyer petit Verdot for rest of tasting. The group, who have been meeting together for tastings for 28 years, did not get this as a cab franc until we revealed the theme of the tasting. Some found it flat and unidimensional. We had decanted 12 h before tasting. After three more hours, it revealed more of itself, with some interest length and complexity. Not the best American cab franc but a credible effort.

  • Opened and not decanted; wine was so dry and chalky during the first 30 mins that we aerated our already-poured stems to try to open this up a little. While this worked the wine nonetheless retained a lingering chalky note throughout the 2.5 hours we followed the first half of this bottle.

    A nice wine if one-dimensional, this seems watered-down to a point that you can't discern any prominent fruit flavors, though the typical CF green notes are evident, as is spice and leather. Not bad and a good wine with casual food, its just lacking depth and complexity to reach higher.

  • Really sorry this is my last bottle. Delicious dark fruit, mineral and spice flavors, smooth, well balanced. Really good.

  • 30 mins opened but not decanted, then consumed over 2 hours. Dark Cherry, spice box, pepper and lightly toasted wood on the nose. Wine doesn't have a ton a depth - its watery yet dry, with blueberry and blackberry flavors. We seek out and enjoy cab francs, and this didn't disappoint.
