Community Tasting Notes 5

    June 21, 2019 - PnP, consumed over three hours. More fruit and less green on the nose and palate than many Cab Francs. Tannins are present but approachable, and soften more with a bit of air.

    May 22, 2019 - I like this wine. Lots of character and plenty of backbone to pair with a meal of substance like braised short ribs. On its own it’s a big wine. I’d recommend a decant to get this wine to open up.

    May 30, 2018 - 95% franc and then 2.5 cane and merlot. All wine bow? Fruit. A vineyard on the near north side of walla walla.

    A high kinda candies sweet nose to the nose. The cab and merlot is there to flush out the mid palate. Maybe some yeast smells on t too. And had a goodly amount of structure as well. Driven on the palate.

    November 22, 2017 - WA had this at 95 points. Hard to see that now. Huge, brooding, tight and tannic. Much too young. Seems to have all the parts. Will be interesting to see how it ages.

    August 17, 2017 - Purple color with an herbal bouquet and flavor but softer than in Loire wines, and more reminiscent of St.-Emilion. Very young and tannic, making it hard to assess. Time will tell whether it will mimic an East-bank wine.
