This wine would make some dork from Davis go ape shit but me I think the funk is kinda killer here. Good simple yet complex juice good for the porch good for the pork chip

Cool campfire note on the nose, with lots of graphite. Bit firmer than usual. Yum.

Fresh and bright with a wallop of tannins coating the finish. Cab franc done fun and right. If LA had seasons, I’d say this is a perfect spring wine.

Quite tasty!! Less vegetal/funky than I was anticipating, nicely defined red plum

Quite vegetal at first but then it mellows into a lovely Loire CF. Exactly what you want when you pull a cork on one of these. Blackberries, raspberries, and red bell pepper along with some green tea leaves and black stone.

I'm such a sucker for Loire cab francs. Raspberry fruit, pencil lead shavings, iron, rocky minerality, lighter body, kicking acid. Damn, this was good. Amazing with chicken livers!

Always solid but this vintage is a step above what I have come to expect
