    August 26, 2021 - Standard fantastic nose for a franc: raspberry, bell pepper, graphite, sage, strawberry, baking spices, spiced chocolate, some oak, definitely a mixture that leaves all tasting profiles well represented

    Raspberry stands out on a pretty dry but still milky mouthfeel, a lot of the same characteristics as the nose and a very long lasting finish that continues to evolve. Good acidity, maybe a little too fruit forward for my preference in cab franc but it could be just a little bit of youth and the fruit is still not quite ripe so a little bit tart and thus the presence is more noticeable. Some bitterness in the finish helps mitigate the fruit, along with the other characteristics.

    January 22, 2021 - Upon initial opening, there was a very reticent nose and a sour cherry taste. Decanted and tried in about 60 minutes and found the wine had opened extensively with a much more polished taste of macerated cherry, raspberry, spice, and tobacco notes. Drank in the next 60 minutes and continued to improve with smooth and velvety mouthfeel, and depth of flavor. Paired wonderfully with veal ossobuco.
