This is very much a food wine, polished with a touch of pepper and spice. It is on the darker side of medium bodied and has lightly rounded tannins.

A young Cabernet Franc, best after some decanting, this wine is medium bodied, with cherry and pepper tones up front, and a bright, fruity finish. It is a worthy follow up to last year's release.

Earthy, minerality is nice, strong structure & classic can franc finish. Leans toward Loire Valley in style.

Rich and fruity with blueberry caramel overtones and a thick chewy fruit finish. Great value!

2018 Vintage. Decadent, bold and delicious. A rich, rowdy red is full-up on flavors Cab Franc drinkers crave. This red is loud and complex, with incredibly juicy fruit flavors and a rich plummy finish. Suggested pairing is a pizza with plenty of basil and parmesan - and a drizzle of olive oil on top. From Naked Wines.

Very nice balance. Can taste the berries without it being too sweet. Very big fan.
