    October 19, 2021 - A nice summer wine to be drunk with a bit of a chill on it. Those unmistakable cab franc hallmarks but with everything lightened and brightened. It's like Tolstoy decided to write a summer beach read. Cab franc takes a vacation.

    June 23, 2021 - Reductive style and it needs an hour in the decanter to let the funk blow away. After that a beautiful fruity performance. Forest berries, black cherries, blueberries, licorice, earthy tones, hints of pepper.
    Juicy in the mouth, cool fruit, good acidity, nice tannin grip, very good length with a little bitterness at the end. Only 12,5% abv, which is pretty remarkable from California.

    Good balance in the wine, and a perfect match for entrecĂ´te with grilled squash and paprika.

    Will buy again.

    January 28, 2021 - Ton of VA right off the top. Had to let it sit for a night before it was really drinkable.
    This is a fun, tart, light and punchy red that I would never guess is cab franc despite the pepper. On day 2/3 and it started to show more green and earthy notes, but this still feels like a wine that's best with a bit of a chill in the afternoon -- and maybe no more than a glass or two (for me).
