Superb. It’s drinking really well now with a punch of fruit forward notes...sweet blackberry, mulberry, ripe blueberry. Fantastic shade of red/purple in the glass with beautiful translucency. Violets, baked mixed berry pie and cedar underbrush. Downright delicious. — 11 days ago

Freakshow Lodi Red Blend

Delicate old school dusty aroma. Inky color. Deep dark tastes of dried figs and hint of coffee? Chocolate? Finishes with a quick tannic dryness. — 11 days ago

Back Barn Oakville Cuvée Zinfandel

Is this wine a Cuvee! It's a Zinfandel. The vintner description is correct. A very smooth wine, low tannins and delicious. — 10 days ago

Freakshow Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon

Color of dark purple, ruby, and a bit brown note on the rim. Nose of dark fruits, tobacco leaves, spice, and indeed some strawberry. Taste is sweet! Zest, cherry, , spice, marginal tannins come next. Quite milky. Aftertaste is also a bit spicy, tobacco leaves, and just a bit too watery. Too sweet for me but may be a good one in the party. — 5 days ago

En Hommage L. Scott Monticello Red Belnd 2015

A tour d’force! power/precision/persuasive begins to outline this epic build. It’s Tannat frontman sings with real integrity and conviction. Maybe the best “big red meat wine” in Virginia. — 22 days ago

Petite Petit Lodi Petite Sirah Petit Verdot 2016

Color of deep purple. Nose and f cocoa, chocolate, dark fruits, raisin, powerful tobacco leaves, and a bit rose note. Nose is plenty and powerful. Taste of dark cherry, sweet grapes, a bit too watery considering the note is powerful, mellow tannins, medicinal note, tobacco leaves, and a bit spice. Aftertaste is some more medicinal note, a bittersweet, and a bit cranberry. Above average. — 9 days ago

Inkblot Cabernet Franc 2015

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a great Cabernet Franc from Lodi.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Very fruity on the nose with blackberries, sweet cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, raisins, spices, dried figs, tobacco, chocolates, mocha, coffee, peppercorn, earth, leather and coke.

Full bodied, elegant and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black plums, cherries, wood, cloves, light vegetables, pencil lead, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, leather, earth, light bell pepper and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a big and chewy Cabernet Franc from California. Well balanced and fruit forward, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (1 hour).

Good by itself as a sipping wine, by the porch, or with a big piece of steak. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Wine Enthusiasts 90 points.

A great example of how I like my Cabernet Franc. Yummy, rich and delicious.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$30.
