2012 Breton Nuits D’Iveresse and Terry Riley’s masterpiece. This wine is bottles without sulfur and is recommended to be consumed quickly after release. Here we are 7 years from vintage and it is in a magical spot. Smoky cherries & firm grippy texture. Aromatics are perfumed & elegant. It pairs beautifully with the minimalist piece as these types of wines and this style of music are so misunderstood. The need to classify & quantify doesn’t fit in either place here. Simply great Cabernet Franc and great music.

Always thought Cabernet Franc was not my wine... But this is loaded with fruit and spices Firm body but smooth drinking.
