Nose has light yeasted bread, plum skin, vanilla bean, bruised yellow apple, (minor) cider vinegar, do much going on here, wow.
Palate has ripe plum flesh, candle wax, ripe pear, candied lemon, light oaky/vanilla notes on the long finish.
Very weighty wine, a white that could be paired with a roasted pork dish!

WA Cab Franc. Might be my first. Smells strange and lovely. Wet earth, aka mud, and dark fruits. Hints of smoke and meats. Even smoked meats. Flavors are robust and extracted. Very full. Nice deepness to the fruit and smoke flavors. This is New World Bordeaux type wine at its best. — 14 days ago

Very nice white. Smooth, dry, a little bit of liberality but with nice subtle melon notes as well. — a month ago
