Dark fruit. Currant. "Burnt sugar". Some red fruit on the palate. Vanilla. Round yet bright with medium + acidity. Long finish. Had with smoked lamb and rosemary fingerling potatoes.

Rich core of fruit, plush, silky texture, surprising dusty tannins. Gave it a pretty long decant and it was quite accessible now. Very, very tasty.

I can’t pin point the one thing that makes me love cab franc, because it’s everything.

Strong pepper character both in the nose and palate. Black and bell peppers. Sawdust or chopped wood notes as well. Medium to full body with a powerful finish that stops short of harsh.

Jammy. Has the feel of a full mouth of grapes. Light acid
