2013. Light on the palate, bright acid, texturally very elegant. Refreshing drink

Cool and unusual, light but distinctive flavors, a cabernet franc!

Very good, but just a baby. Pronounced black fruit with oodles of pepper aromas. More of the same on the palate with tartness and a more viscous texture than I've encountered before with this producer's wines. Drinkable now and very good, but this one needs a few more years to develop IMO.

Minerally, lots of dark olives, definitely a colder climate grape
