George Clinton wine. We got the funk! But there is intensity to the fruit and a seamless tannic feel. Opens up like gangbusters in the glass. More potpourri and herbs. More silk.

2014. Raspberries, violets, river stones. Somehow simultaneously cool and ripe. Superb value.

A nice trifecta of fruit, earth and herbs. Paired nicely with the bone marrow w/bacon. No complaints and hardly a detection of green pepper (that's a good thing in my book). Confirms that I love cab francs from saumur.

As classic as a 2CV and twice as elegant. Yes! you feel, this - THIS is what Cabernet Franc from the Loire should taste like. Benchmark. Lovely juice, as they say

This is seriously good cab franc from a wonderful vintage that drinks now while the bigger guns in the line up slumber.

Man. I did NOT know how this was gonna turn out. So much time it took this wild beast to tame. Briney, tomato vine, plenty of acid, moderate body, Garam Masala and savory spice, funky ass fruit. I feel like pork shoulder.
