Great fruit and earthy forward wine. Ripe and clean with none of that green pepperish taste. Thin and sandy tannins that brings backbone to the wine.

Some acid, some rocks - lots of green pepper.

Moss and bramble on the nose. Gives the mental image of morning dew and spring foliage. In the mouth, tart acidity drives this wine with a pleasant herbaceous finish.

2000 vintage. Huge grassy aroma upon opening. After lengthy decanting, a phenomenal beautiful cab franc emerges, fine tannins, with lush texture and layers of flavor that build to an apex of cold smooth stone, fennel and a slight hint of tobacco. 5.75 out of 6 Jeffersons. This is a gorgeous Loire Valley red, from a badass winemaker.
