    February 6, 2018 - Well balanced franc - varietally correct, moderate tannins. Might have liked a little more richness in the fruit, but a good food wine.

    June 7, 2017 - Black cherry, blackberry, licorice and spice with a touch of sweetness. Definitely toward the full end of the full/austere spectrum with a tannic grip on the finish. Very good although a little richer than I recall from previous vintages. Most of our favorite food matches for this grape work better with something a little leaner. Good wine though.

    March 12, 2017 - Tasting at a LWS and meeting an old friend for the first time (WRW): An interesting wine. Purple in color. The nose has dark cherries, some tobacco and a bit of spice. On the palate, medium tannins. There is some depth here. Still young. Good fruit. A riper version of Cab Franc which is fine for me. Nice finish. $30 Ohio, it probably has some upside in the cellar.

    December 28, 2016 - Overall, I think this needs more time in the bottle. It is a jammy fruit bomb that needs to mellow a bit. But the quality and potential is certainly there. We enjoyed it, but would have preferred the fruit to be a bit more subdued. Great now if you want a wine that drinks more like a late harvest.
