    March 17, 2018 - This has bounced back since our last bottle. More fruit, stayed strong over four hours. Would be great to find a magnum.

    September 22, 2015 - Same notes as previous bottle. Have one bottle left which we intend to hold for quite a while to see where it ultimately ends up.

    May 18, 2015 - This cab franc is starting to undergo a transformation from primary to secondary tastes. Getting softer and earthier than before. Suspect further bottle aging time will continue to move the wine in this earthier direction. I'm more of a primary guy so score is a little lower than the last couple, but still love it.

    January 6, 2015 - This has gotten a little softer with time, but still an outstanding cab franc. This is not for you if you are looking for a little green that a younger CF can give you, but it is a real pleasure to drink. And plenty of life still left in its primary drinking window. Opened two hours before dinner, then drank over next four, solid the whole time.

    May 4, 2014 - Probably the best cab franc we have had, and we've had many. You would think it was a cab if you didn't know it was a cab franc. An excellent example of Prichard Hill at its finest. Has at least 3-5 years left in it. Tannins still evident but pretty well integrated at this point.
