Quite muted this evening. Let’s see what day 2 brings. Day 2 update—not much. Maybe I was just way too early on this

Great nose. Beautiful cassis and berry fruit. Some beautiful minerality. Amazingly layered and detailed. Superbly mineral and earthy and wonderful layered and deep aromas. Stunning, really. Juicy with crisp acids and so much fruit and a taut structure. Long finish that dissipates beautifully.

Exactly what I want from Loire cab franc. Funky nose of dark fruits, veggies, earth, but t also a floral background. Palate is just courteous with insanely fresh flavors of plum, herbs, cherries, and typical pepper.
