    October 12, 2018 - I have a fairly cynical view of most Cab Franc grown in California, but this one is actually quite nice; The fruit is elegant on the palate, but it does have some underpinnings of green herbs and earth, even if it's secondary to the lush fruit; Probably wouldn't have guessed this was Cab Franc blind, but it's quite tasty nonetheless

    November 7, 2017 - It’s still young, but shows promise. Definitely tight, and needs time to open up and achieve the complexity it will a few more years down the road. Deep berry on the nose and a hint of spice on the palate.
