Dark fruit with balanced acid and hints of bell pepper. Enjoyed it with lamb Ragu pasta.

Dark fruit with a dry finish. Babs liked it more than me. Not enough aromas for my taste. 14.95 at lawc. Would get again.

McCarthy & Schiering, $17

Nose has dark fruit with very prominent classic cab franc green pepper, with a slight smoke and spice that reminds me of charred jalapeno. Not much of the green pepper on the palate with slightly muted berry notes and a very subtle finish of sort of a candied or bubblegum cranberry. The real star is the structure and balance, just enough acidity and silky tannins that leaves a mouth watering sweet aftertaste. Really a nice mouth feel. It's slightly above my budget and I wish it had slightly more interesting tasting notes but overall a very nice cab franc.

Luscious fruits, with a hint of acid and he take tanins. Nice and easy drinking wine. Needed some time to breath.
