Blind. Loved it. Heady floral perfume. Entering sweet spot with evolved aromatics but still youthful fruit.

Absolutely stunning. A touch young, but still developing.

First varietal Cabernet Franc wine I've had from @Cathy Corison . Delicious; a very nice complement to a medium-rare flank steak. It was even better shared with friends. :-)

Probably a bit young. Nice fruit, but probably needed a lot more air. Solid Cab Franc and paired nicely with our meal.

Memories from our '15 Napa trip! Light and decent fruit, but definitely needs some air. A little tart for a cab franc, but love the low OH and how easy it drinks. Cathy knows what she is doing! Try it!

Pure, black cherry fruit, really nice tannins and balance. Perfectly mouthwatering without being tart. The "Christmas Red" choice.
