An excellent wine for the money. Subtle aroma of licorice and leather. Strong fruit with that light leathery finish.

Great value at under $15. Notes of leather, pepper and soil. Dry with medium tannins on the finish. Paired awesome with a grilled ribeye and garlic ontoy.

Beautiful color of light ruby with a light burgundy rim.

Gentle nose of sweet raspberries, earth, blueberries, plums, cherries, licorice, oak, metals, nail polish remover, light black pepper and green pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, oak, pomegranate, vanilla, licorice, green vegetables, bell pepper, earth, forest floor, black pepper and spices.

Short finish with angular tannins and black pepper.

A nice Cabernet Franc from Argentina. My first one, actually.
Light Gentle mouth feel on the mid palate, until the tannins kick in.
Interesting with nice complexity, but not too much... 😃

Made with minimal intrusion, and it is unfined and Unfiltered.

14% alcohol by volume.

This is simply remarkable. If you didn't know it, the nose would automatically signal Napa cab. This is a stunning cab franc that is blowing my mind right now. The nose is deep, black plum and blackberry sitting in an old leather workboot. The palate is full bodied, yet easy at the same time. The beginning and mid palate are both fairly thin and smooth, but it finishes with blackberry goodness. This is just brilliant.

Picked this up at my local wine shop for dinner-skirt steak with mango pineapple habanero glaze. Perfect.
