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.

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

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

Light start with full bodied end. Great by itself and with lean meats.
