Capa y densidad baja, color cereza, en nariz buena potencia, frambuesa, hierva, fondo mineral. En boca ágil, buen paso, final corto y con un amargor bastante pronunciado.

Vin bio and a damned good one. True to type cabernet franc, very lively with clear raspberries in smell and taste. Good balance, not too stewy/big but elegant. Like this glass, it gives joy! Partnered it with duck breast. / 24h later it get's a velvety structure, great with some Leidse kaas

Reductive, bell peppers and raspberries aromas; light with enough tannins, menthol and earthy flavours

Just plain drinkable with a lot of red fruit, pretty CF aromatics and just a touch of funky-earthiness.

More lean than ripe, though it shows a bit of oxidative/raisin notes on the nose. Red fruits, quite mineral/tobacco/resiny. Higher acids and tart mouthfeel. Pairs well with smoked/grilled pork and navy bean stew.

A ripe vintage, but this one has the acid it needs. Dark fruit and great minerality, and biodynamic too!

Delicous red for a summer day. Ripe fruit to start, strong tobacco and acidity with mild tannins to finish. Very easy to drink with good length.
