    November 21, 2018 - Bottle 2 of 6. Last time I had a bottle was 2 yrs ago.
    Took this one to GA for Thanksgiving, no formal TN.
    Red fruit and barnyard, old leather, tobacco leaf.
    Gritty, chewy tannins with a med+ finish of bright red fruits and soil notes.
    Drink now through 2024+.

    August 22, 2017 - Very tight and tannic first day; more approachable on the second. Red fruit, cranberry most notably. Sour disposition. Some earth and herbs. In spite of my first tasting note for this wine, I think I'm not a fan. Will look to sell my remaining bottles if possible.

    September 18, 2016 - I am just loving Cab Franc from the Loire.
    This wine was so barnyard funky upon opening, but the aromas and flavors really integrated over an hour in the decanter.
    Moist earth, funky shrooms, tobacco leaf, some mild green pepper, and tart red raspberry or cherry fruit in there somewhere.
    Nice medium bodied wine (13% abv), with beautifully tart, just-right acidity, and firmly present tannins.
    Everything is just right in this wine, and the interest level for old-skool aficionados is off the charts.
    Drink now through 2024. It is soooo gooood right now, tho...

    August 26, 2016 - Fabulous wine. From the deep garnet>ruby color, to the aromas of freshly turned earth and just-picked red and black fruits, to the deeply satisfying finish, this wine has it all. Perfectly ripe fruits, loads of earthy character, sweet tobacco, and structure to spare; this is what I want to drink every week. Forever. And as good as it was on day 1 (with 2hr audoze), it was even better on day 2; surely this would have lasted a few more days, as well. Medium-bodied, with a layered silkiness defining the textures. An excellent example of the variety and region of S-C. Thru 2028. 13,0% abv. is resolved. highly recommended
