Poured through Coravin aerator. Dark ruby. Inviting nose of black raspberry, light oak, and cassis. Full bodied palate echoes the nose with velvety tannins and a lengthy, slightly nutty finish. Cabernet Franc takes the lead in this “upside down” Bordeaux. Slightly New World in style, but Bordeaux all the way. Drink now through 2025.

うきうきセールで税込2849円のボルドー、カベルネフラン主体。AOCとしては良いお値段。
冒険しました。
ワインで「金賞受賞」というのは鬼門なのですが、2018ビンテージのマジックか、なかなかよろしい。まだかなり若いですが、凝縮した果実味、オレンジピールやチョコレートも感じせる複雑さも秀逸。酸味はもう少し抑えめな方が好み。

2018.
Cork is midnight violet. The wine itself is thick violet crimson.
Black Forest licorice on the nose.
Further olfaction indicates chocolate and cocoa.

The cab franc is potentially brought around into something with structure by the Merlot.

8 bucks. For real! A steal at total wine.

Velvety, rich and very easy to drink. Enjoyed this one a lot.

Nice, not too earthy. Even though it's a Bordeaux it's 85% Cab Franc and 15% Merlot.

One of the better cab Francs I've had. Not too much bell pepper. Ensconced in velvet. For those who enjoy a soft wine I recommend this one. In the Corvey style
