    March 30, 2016 - Throws lots of sediment. Bright fruit, good complexity, a real palate pleaser. Liked it more than the 2006.

    July 17, 2011 - Check out my photo. This is a signed bottle from a private tasting we did with Vic Bourassa. I love all things Bourassa and I took a bottle of this--among others--home with me because there's no way to find it back east. This is really tight on the palate and this sucker was aged in French Oak--which I love--for 3 years and it shows. Wonderful red fruit and cedar notes with great tannic structure. I think I'll be getter more of this as I actually joined his club and I am very circumspect about joining clubs. Vic Bourassa rocks!
    I include this from Bourassa as well: Made in the traditional reserve style, we aged this Cabernet Franc for 36 months in French Oak. For added color and dark berry notes, a small amount of Petite Sirah was blended in. We feel we have achieved in making a wonderful medium-bodied wine with a plush mouth feel, and long spicy finish. This Cabernet Franc should hold up well for up to ten years.

    June 25, 2011 - From Bourassa, June 2011: "The 2007 napa valley Cabernet franc represents the second year in a row we have offered the varietal as a stand alone and once again we are very pleased with the results. In the nose you will get a great combination of Carmel apple, red cherry, and herbal notes, while on the palate the wine will layer beautiful flavors of delicate blueberry jam. The finish is lengthy and loaded with spice notes. Try pairing this cabernet franc with braised lamb or roast duck. We recommend drinking now through 2015."

    May 18, 2011 - A lighter Cab Franc with plum, anise and maybe a bit of cocoa.
