Nice subtle old world chinon. Has that dusty flavor only found in Europe. Not very long in mouth and maybe a tad green, but good.

What a lovely Cab Franc! Such a pleasant finish. Everything I like in Cab Francs, yet they are so rare and hard to find in this part of the Hemisphere. At first the smell is funky, but the taste and finish are super pleasant!

Pepper, blood, forest floor, a little spice, stemmy tannins, and medium acid. Simplicity and freshness.

I'm a big fan of what's coming out of the Chinon AOC these days and this biodynamic Cab Franc is no exception

Incredible. Pepper and complex fruit that is present from beginning to end.
