    August 7, 2021 - From a mature, rocky hillside vineyard in Knights Valley. Med (+) ruby, with viscous dark legs. Unfined and unfiltered. Med (+) ripe black fruit, purple flowers and a fair amount of oak spice. Dry, but fruit-forward, with med to med (-) acidity and tannins. The alcohol is high (16.4%) but does not taste hot. Very rounded and smooth mouthfeel, with pronounced flavor intensity and a long finish. Unabashedly New World, this is not your typical Loire Valley Cabernet Franc. At its peak, or slightly past, not likely to improve with further aging.

    June 30, 2017 - If anyone has a bottle, drink up! It's really showing well right now and gulpable! Super smooth, still bright fruit and just a lovely wine.

    September 15, 2013 - The "After-A-Really-Bad-Wine-Tasting" Wine Tasting (Our place): Smooth tannins, spicy green nose with a light mineral on the finish. Enjoyable, but not overly notable... I didn't get as large a sense of sweet, lush fruit as several others did in this bottle.
