    May 2, 2021 - see prior note. Still fresh with primary fruit aromas, structured wine with lingering finish. Could still age another 5 to 7 years.

    February 7, 2020 - The color is a deep magenta at the core with a lighter magenta at the rim. This remains one of the best Virginia Cab. Francs! Initially very primary and a touch green. With some air, scents of mushroom, earth, raspberry, green pepper, and thyme. Well fruited with excellent structure that delivers additional flavors of plum and black olive. A fairly complex wine. 14.7% alc. With cheeses (truffle, Stilton, hollerhocker) with crusty bread. Recommended.

    April 11, 2019 - This is a stunning example of Virginia Cab. Franc! Rich, well fruited, abundant structure, depth, complexity and length. Plum and cranberry on the attack morphing to mocha on the finish. This could replace B’ville Cab Franc as my favorite Va. CF. 14.7% alc. (date in doubt). With Shack Attack beef burgers. Recommended.

    February 22, 2019 - deep ruby. aromas of medium plus intensity and primarily violets and coconut, also green bell peppers, sandalwood, vanilla, hint of black berry. On the palate the wine is dry with medium body, medium plus acidity, medium plus fine grained silky tannins, medium plus Etoh, and a lingering finish. On the palate- same as on the nose, maybe a hint more fruit. A beautifully balanced wine with intensity and finish, Very Good. Drink now or hold another 3-5 yrs.

    February 1, 2018 - Very solid wine. Hard to believe this is made in VA. Darker fruits like blackberry, and plum. Slight licorice and char accents. Moderate acidity and medium to full bodied. I like it and would buy again.
