Crunchy red fruit and brisk acidity. My kind of red.

Red fruit, dried floral, forest floor. Smooth texture leading to building tannins.

This bottle really hit the spot - I love the crunchy bitterness here. Fruit is just right and the aftertaste is very pleasant. Great!

As a medium-range Loire Cab franc, this offers excellent value. Clean, earthy/leathery but no Brett. Acidity is tame and the tannins round and savoury; perhaps a bit more depth to the fruit would have been nice.

Great single-vineyard Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley AOC Chinon. Nice herby notes, lively acidity, and grippy tannins. #Chinon #Loire #KermitLynch
