    October 12, 2017 - Beautiful. One of the best expressions of Cab Franc I've had. Great balance, none of the vegetal notes that sometimes come with the Franc. Great aromas. Long finish. Still beautiful fruit but drink now.

    July 29, 2005 - Still great. Bold and spicy and took a bit to open up. Still holding up for a few more years I expect.

    February 4, 2005 - One of the best Cab Franc's I've ever had. Really amazing. Sweet tannins, cherry, fruit, nice aromatics, bold, nice finish.
