Pretty decent cab franc...dark fruits a little bell peppery comes out under the oak. Soft tannin...just slightly under ripe

Great #wine. I see hints, and characters of #CabFanc, just very faint and fine. Still a tremendous wine. Dry with tannins coming alive after time. Firm cherry flavors with some leather, and Jalepeno. Clean throughout.

Loved this for $22. Ripe Cali Cab Franc that isn't fruity. Just a hint of barnyard with blueberries and blackberries, a smidge of oak, and a bone dry finish. Medium bodied and 14% alc.

Wonderful cab franc for the price, which keeps me wondering why I don't but more cab franc. Thanksgiving #2.
