Goober amounts of sour cherries on the nose and palate. Background notes of green pepper and underbrush develop throughout. Not overly complex, but a crazy good compliment to a meal. I can see how this influences their Octagon blend in such a good way. Cheers!

Nice, but not a big red. Pair with a light meat, like a pork roast. BTW, Love Barboursville!

Very correct Cab Franc, made in an old world style. On the nose, red fruit and peppers. In the mouth round red fruit, some integrated oak, a bit of black pepper. Some moderate tannin and acid, medium-long finish. Great QPR.
