Really solid but still a baby. May be underrating it

I'm loving some Loire Cab Franc right now. Bigger style, dark and dense. Black fruit, iron, turned earth.

Brett and lactobacillus. Bandaid and baby diaper. Palate under Bret and pedio is nice bit of cherry and cinnamon

Precise & generous sweet fruit & with herb balance - just so easy to drink but substantial - that Loire 'surprisingly - less is so much more'.

Nice to see this a couple years from release. Still good violet/cherry pit aromas. Less earthy than earlier - smooth & tasty.

Average. Cab franc with crispy duck. Nothing special but acceptable as wine by the glass in restaurant.

High acidity, doing (almost) everything a Burgundy would for the meal.
