    April 28, 2017 - Probably a bit young. Nice fruit, but probably needed a lot more air. Solid Cab Franc and paired nicely with our meal.

    January 21, 2017 - Leftovers:)....sometimes I hate when I'm right! Air did amazing things for this baby. After 22hrs the fruit was popping, it was much bolder, but still silky smooth. Upgrading my score substantially!

    January 20, 2017 - Memories from our '15 Napa trip! Light and decent fruit, but definitely needs some air. A little tart for a cab franc, but love the low OH and how easy it drinks. Cathy knows what she is doing! Try it!

    July 22, 2015 - Bright red fruit with green pepper nose. Lots of juicy ripe (but not overripe) cherry, green pepper, river rock with plenty of acid and a firm tannin with a persistent mineral finish. Medium bodied making it much lighter than the cab. While there's no mistaking this for old-world Cab Franc, but it was really a delightful, juicy, refreshing, but transparent effort. It's approachable now, but I might hold for a couple years.

    This is from a single block just north of Kronos in St Helena. I like this a lot and a bit more than the previous Helios red (a syrah from Atlas Peak).
