    December 2, 2019 - Russk. From Garagiste. Glad i have 2 more. Reminds me of a milder 2014 Breton Franc de Pied. Nice bretty-horsey Cab Franc nose and mouth. Medium bodied. 91+ pts. Get more at $13.

    November 6, 2019 - Simple and straightforward, great accompaniment for a plain meal

    Last third of bottle develops an attractive softness, easing the initial green woody notes into red currant and violets

    October 28, 2019 - Green and funky with mild sweetness in the background. Best during the first hour. 12.4% ABV.
