    March 13, 2014 - Fjellene 2009 Eastern approach (60 CF 40 ME)

    Simpler and cleaner than I had hoped. A clear, bright, accessible red with the barest hint of tannin. Just a touch of the green cab franc among cranberry and blackberry. The palate is full without being particularly concentrated. There is a hint of spice but not enough to make it fabulously interesting.

    I'm ok with the $15 price tag. It isn't horribly commercial but it isn't a steal at this level. I'd take a BV Napa ($22) any day.
