Crimson red, with light intensity. Nose was very tight, if there even is one. Smells slightly acidic. Palate has a slight acidic bite and very dry. Low tannins and light body. Very dry finish with a moderate finish. 100% Cabernet Franc. A solid cabernet franc from the Loire Valley, did not exceed expectations, just met then for an $11.99 bottle.

Pours a light ruby in color. Aromas of cherry and green. Flavors of slight be pepper and tart cherry win hints of tobacco and earth. Light bodies and short finish. Definitely not a U.S. Cab Franc but it's not bad at all.

Pleasant cab franc, if not amazing. Up to the task of pairing with a diverse Oscar dinner menu.

Lovely! Dark fruit with vegetal, herbal flavors, but not 'green'. Supple, structured tannins with bright acidity :)

Needs a little time to she and soften. Still good, EARTHY AND DIRTY.

Classic clean Cab Franc. Quite minerally, young tannins. Will be quite a bit better in 3-5 years, already enjoyable though.

Great value for a deliciously smooth and floral Cab Franc.
