    March 9, 2021 - Briefly decanted. Wonderfully rich, dense and dark fruit accompanied by a finish that goes on for infinity.

    January 27, 2021 - Has really come into its own. Has smoothed out, dark fruit is still dominant but in a better place than when it was younger.

    April 17, 2020 - Opened for the Chappellet Hideaway tasting on 4/17 because I didn’t want to touch the ‘16 Hideaway just yet.

    Correct decision rewarded!

    2 hr decant and this was singing. Dark colored beauty with bricked colored edges, but no appearance of bricking at this early stage. No usual green notes here that one sometimes finds in Napa CF.. No apparent oak, tannins integrating. Lovely floral and perfumed nose with charred earth and a touch of blueberry liquer. Blue fruit palate with a touch of black fruit, no red fruit anywhere to be found. Much better than my earlier bottle, QPR is off the charts! Cab Franc done right!

    April 6, 2019 - Great wine, but watch out for the strong tannins. You may feel this one the next day.

    July 15, 2018 - Seriously...just a great wine. A hint of "dankness" that I think is what a good cabernet franc has.
