Very smooth, dark currants and berries, violets and some herbal notes. Really amazing.

A lot of fruit especially this young. The Cab Franc is quite floral and gives great structure, both acidity and fine tannins. Drinks well young, but this can last for years. Robert Hunt is a great winemaker.

Picked up some -14s on Last Bottle today so I thought it’d check in on this -12. Wins the pleasant surprise award. 2/3 CF 1/3 Merlot. Nice medium body, rusty red and blue fruits with a tart Cab Francy finish with no green. Dry and still tannic. Probably has a few years before peak.

Great fruit and texture right up front. Coats the palate nicely and has deep black cherry and strawberry flavors. Very solid wine!

Nice wine but lacking body for higher score. Oaky upfront and sweet edge at the end.

Strong tannins. Plum. Blackberry. Too young. Age another 8 years to calm the tough tannins down.

Black licorice. Dark berries. More tannins this is insane good.
