Nice, but didn't leave a strong impression. Would buy again in a pinch, but not a favorite.

A weird mineral floral smell. A milk chocolate with a hint blueberry. I think it is a tobacco on the palate. The dryness is coming through. This will definitely open up and soften out!

Cab Franc is my go to and for the price, this will not disappoint. Highly recommend for the franc fans.

Fruit, spice and some definite cigar box. Not the most varietally correct Cab Franc but it does push some boundaries.

This wine goes well with many Mediterranean dishes. Easy balanced nice when you have neighborhood store that has a poor selection of wines.
