    December 21, 2020 - Ready to go with a 2 hour decant. Lots of blue fruits on day 1, which seemed to intensify and add a bit of a cherry liqueur note on Day 2. Paired great with a big fatty ribeye roast. Don't hesitate to drink now.

    November 1, 2020 - This is a plush wine with touches of green pepper tones underneath the blue fruit. The blend is so well crafted that it allows only the best attributes of the Cab Franc to grin through. I like the plush feel and the coziness of the wine, coupled with the dryness in both sugar, and the tug and pull of the sandy fine tannins. Definitely a cold weather wine! As for the drinking window, I like this where it is at now and would say that this should be drank sooner rather than later. Sexy and exotic long finish with good energy. A wee bit expensive but very nice. Drink

    September 7, 2019 - Not quite as complex as previous tastings. Not sure if bottle is off (not from my cellar) or in a dumb phase. Still quite nice.

    August 11, 2019 - Nose: cherries, oak, caramel. Pretty darn good nose. This is a candidate for nose/smell and not drink. :)

    Taste: woody, dark fruit, long finish with some anise and licorice.

    November 18, 2018 - Decanted about 2 hours in advance. The wine was drinking very well. Nice Cab Franc character with red fruits and medium body with hints of green pepper. Paired very well with the medium rare tenderloin.
