    October 16, 2019 - Deep and intense wine with good Franc character. Solid but not as mellowed as I'd expect/hope for a wine with this age. A bit austere.

    September 29, 2017 - shared with pat at selkirk manor to celebrate the end of the work week. pulled this bottle since several notes suggest that it is in its prime drinking window. i agree that the wine drinks beautifully now. but, at 14.7 alcohol, it packs quite a punch. therefore, i am disappointed that i purchased only one bottle since i believe that this wine will continue to evolve for some time to come. i have come to appreciate the cab franc grape from many parts of the world. this is an excellent example. generous nose and mouth feel. dark color, dark fruit flavors. long finish. no funk in this bottle.

    shout out to tall mike wine: there is no way that you could ever catch me consuming horse dung. even if coated with my favorite chocolate. to paraphrase the old saying, pig in an evening gown is still a pig, dung covered in chocolate is still dung. i am grateful that he did not have to deal with this quagmire in my bottle.

    June 6, 2017 - Oh, some good old fashioned FUNK in this one. Like a really dirty, barnyard, sort of chocolate covered horse dung. No, really. In a good way (work with me here). The fruit is there, humming along nicely, but for the first hour the funk was in command! Whoot! Drink now, and feel the funk. That is all!
