    December 29, 2014 - Pleasant, good cabernet franc nose. Taste is a little dull, ok wine, not great.

    January 8, 2014 - A bit out of balance. The alcohol stood out a bit, nevertheless the wine drank pretty well. But it lacks terroir, this wine could be any other (supermarket) wine with a bdx blend, so I'm not that impressed.
