    August 17, 2013 - Nice long finish, good acid, dark fruit. Tobacco and cherry nose, earthy notes. Probably at its peak when consumed

    August 9, 2010 - Nice CF, nothing too out of the ordinary. Good to pop and pour on a Saturday night. Definite vegetal tones, both on the nose and on the palate. A little green for my taste, but mostly because it was being consumed right after an Iron Horse CF that blew me away.

    July 4, 2009 - Pop and pour. Dark ruby red, somewhat opaque. Nose of oak, cassis, cherry. Medium amounts of well-oaked, dark cherry fruit with the classic Cab Franc pepper that shows itself mid-palette and lasting through the finish. Decently balanced.
