Super crushable with Persian inspired, grilled lamb kebab, eggplant spread, yogurt sauce and grilled tomatoes. Just the right balance of acid, density, and fruit.

Robbing the cradle I know, yet have to taste when I grab a trinity.

Smells like roasted animal fat (as a Pescatarian, the same qualities are very similar) and old socks.

Tastes of olive oil (Animal fat) Herbs de Provence, leather, Tabac.
This finishes with medium tannin/acid mouthfeel.
This is a nice Cab Franc. South America shines!

Blackberries and big tanins, less funky than some francs but stronger taste than the winemaker's malbec and cab sauv.

Nose of blackberry, beef fat, chocolate, some mint perhaps. Quite nice aromas.

Underripe blackberries and plums. Med acidity and med tannin with a metallic note and touch of alcohol heat.

Hmmm. Nice nose but palate leaves a bit to be desired. A bit austere for my taste but got better with air. Perhaps opened a bit too young.

Stacia greatly enjoyed this bottle as part of her birthday celebration. Classic franc, but very neutral oak (little vanilla or other finish). Would def. have again!
