    March 8, 2017 - Nice geek squad daily drinker with cassis and cherry pit, a bit of green pepper, olive and truffle and a good tannic spine. Not as bretty as other reviewers have noted.

    February 21, 2017 - Clear garnet. Maraska cherry aroma in the glass, wet stones, Forest floor. Bold acidity and savory minerality, with berry fruit that stands apart from many loire can francs. Excellent.

    February 18, 2017 - P&p; drinking well right away. Fresh aroma with plenty of typicity, along the lines of berries/cherry, flowers, stony earth, and light sappy vegetation/black tea/tobacco. Similar on the palate - fresh/vibrant, sappy, stony/earthy/mineral, with good acidity. Tannins are moderate but certainly discernible; well integrated, working cohesively with the acidity. Light streaks of salinity and savoriness contribute to the general moreishness. Highly drinkable. Good stuff and a good value.

    December 25, 2016 - True to variety and place. Very good concentration, not the pepper water that so many of these wines are, great acid. A Loire Cabernet Franc that would make you want to taste more Loire Cabernet Franc.
