A very fine wine and ready to drink. Lots of complex flavors. Fruit dropped back and let toast and forest floor through. Yum

Smooth wine, delicate tannins, lace on the palate. Sexy Boudreaux blend! Opening up beautifully!

IMHO much better than the pure Cab Franc label. Dry, very little oak, long finish, reminded me of the Loire equivalents

Torn on this. It's a good wine, but I was silly to cellar it for a decade.

Really pretty aromatics and some red fruit still in there, but it seems like it may have peaked a year or two ago.

Great red wine to pair with a prime ribeye. Tannins in check and smooth finish. In honor of the U.S. Open.

Slight oxidation blows off and then some plums and cherry. Showing its age but still enjoyable.

On a wine trip to Washington and this is the wine I'll judge all others against. One of the great wines of the U.S.: sombre, serious, and ageworthy with proper tannins.
