    July 22, 2018 - Medium garnet color in the glass. No signs of bricking. Rich, round and robust. Some dark fruit evident but mostly savory flavors of tobacco box, coffee and saddle leather. Medium bodied and medium finish. Drinking very nicely right now.

    March 29, 2018 - I think it got better with even more aging. Really outstanding!

    September 29, 2016 - Hands down one of the best Cab Francs i've ever had. Cork disintegrated during the opening process, but was able to transfer the wine to a carafe with no problem. Initial taste out of the bottle was weak and unimpressive, but after time to open up (tastes at 15, 20, and 30 minutes), this wine blossomed into liquid gold. While the corks may not survive, this wine has plenty left to offer and should be excellent for a few years still.

    December 8, 2012 - Dark Inky Purple in color. Blackberry, currants, with a small bit of cedar and granite on the nose. Lingering finish with well rounded tannins and the perfect hint of acidity.
