Porty and young. Impossible blind tasting. Truly unique.

About five bottles worth of flavor in one bottle of wine. This one is a mind-blower--needs a small party to finish, like a bottle of port--contains the entire flavor spectrum of cab franc, from vegetal to pruney, and everything in between. Thick like syrup, high alcohol. Somehow manages to be balanced though, maybe it's a Jedi mind trick.

Christ. Someone's feeling generous tonight. Happy to get a tipple. At 10 years. It's still too young. Shows all the the range of Cab Franc flavors and aromas. Kinda crazy. Big, yet lithe and elegant. Tannic, but velvety smooth. Hard to wrap your head around this on one glass.

Intense and deep. You could fall for days in the depth of this wine. #KLWMafterhours

Hints of green bell pepper on the nose with port like fruit. The palate follows true to the nose. Hints of chocolate and dark fruits. Long finish of port flavors. I enjoyed a ribeye with truffle gravy with this wine. Slam dunk! Thanks Farnoush.
