    July 21, 2017 - Medium bodied with a equally matched finish, this is a slight touch softer than at release. Lots of sediment on the cork and neck. Pride's Cab Franc is one of my favorite wines, but I don't feel it gets better with time. It's great at release given a little time in the glass, and a few years later it's still delicious, but it's not better, at least for me. I see no reason not to drink it now.

    December 5, 2016 - - Brick color with slow forming legs and aromas of cherry, vanilla and cedar. It's balanced and has flavours of cherry, black currant and blackberry with a medium/full body. Smooth texture with a long finish - Decanted four hours. The wine lost its edge and gained its body over the time. The cedar nose is slight pencil shavings. Loved this wine; served with pork chops with root beer sauce, thank you chef Emeril Lagasse, a perfect match!

    Slight sediment thrown, I think another 7-10 years in cellar.

    August 21, 2016 - Spicy fresh herb on the nose and tongue. The higher alcohol content shows in the legs and on the tongue. It has a secondary fruit note of unsweetened dark fruit (black cherry, black currant). It is not a ripe, fresh or dried fruit note, but is definitely present. This wine will soften with age, but it may not get better.

    August 22, 2015 - Great wine. Still needs some time to open up but when it does it's really good. Flavors of cherry with a long finish. The nose isn't great at first but it opens quite nice. Still needs time but this could be outstanding 2-5 years
