Green bell pepper, herbs, cranberry, red plum. Cab Franc and Merlot. 12.3%. Diminished tannins. Medium minus body. Easy drinking food friendly.

No words. Natty crunk meets ‘60s right bank Bordeaux. Luncheon claret...as you might have been served by Warhol or Timothy Leary. The Merlot seems a bit riper and more assertive in this vintage, but the CF wrapper leaf and cranberry pop comes in on the surprisingly suave and sneaky-tannic finish. There are no better wines being made in America if you love things that have one foot firmly rooted in the classics and the other with the itch for the new. Superlative and timeless.

Very small production NY Lake District red blend of 80% cab franc & 20% merlot. Nothing broad here. Fine wild blackberries & eucalyptus, untamed & unruly. Truly intriguing & delicious—& at 20$, a steal. 2nd bottle.

Really interesting. Low alcohol-12.5%-quite tannic so has some legs to age, or benefits from a robust decant ( which we didn’t do). On nose plenty of wild raspberry, palate is somewhere between an old school Bordeaux & Saumur red( blend is 70% cab franc & 30% merlot), along with serious tannic structure. Serious natural winemakers too.
