    December 25, 2014 - Opened 2hrs prior to consuming. Used "frog aerator" to pour 4 glasses from the bottle. Paired with salt encrusted Prime Rib. Cork was in good condition, small amount of sediment, dark in the glass but not opaque, good nose of but not overpowering, mouthfeel was full but not extracted, aftertaste of pepper and stone. Excellent wine, surprised at its longevity. Cut thru the fat of the Prime Rib and was one the better wines of this year, sorry that it was my last bottle. Purchased in Dundee at the old nut factory, "Good on you David O'Reilly".

    August 3, 2013 - This was one of the best varietal labeled Cab Francs I had since the Matthews Conner Lee. I concur with other reviews of the great aromatics and fruit purity.

    March 12, 2013 - Drank my last bottle and it was great; with a nice balance of earth and mature fruit.

    November 18, 2011 - Drinking much better than last bottle. Nose is dominated with bell pepper spice and jammy red raspberries and strawberry. Smell vegetal aside from the pepper as well along with some poopy earth aromas.
