Another great bottle from Cathy Corison with tons of ripe fruit and silky texture. Good stuff!

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. :-)

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

Concentrated and powerful cab franc. I would love to see this wine tamed by some roasted duck or squab. Yum

Dark fruit jam, pipe tobacco/molasses, minor vegetative notes with spicy finish. Bit higher alcohol than expected. But outstanding

Old world aromas green bean. Prune, and a cooked sweet/savory - molasses/balsamic? Caramelized onions? Delicious with French onion soup.
