Really love the bright acidity and green notes at the start. Couple of years and this'll "grow up".

Another surprising glass from @Christopher Bates at dinner this eve. The most Chinon-esque Cab Franc I've had from the Finger Lakes. Pepper, earth, nice.

Drinks very well. Definitely would improve with time. Structured enough to sit on for a while. Would love to taste in 2-3+ years (and then again in 5+)
