Day 6 of social distancing. Paired it with the movie The Good Liar. Ron wanted something from South America and not Pinot. Tried to convince him we were drinking a Malbec. Obviously not a Good Liar!

Mr Roth always insists on the essential nature of Cab Franc, it’s place in the world being nearly perfect. Good extraction, complete fruit on palette. Actually had it with Jory’s version of razor clams on black rossetto.....cold fresh English pea soup infused with local lump crab.

2015 vintage - probably will improve with a few years in the cellar, but still very good already. Paired with a ribeye steak and Kenny G.

So good! Fantastic structure, strong tannins that developed with air. Nose took some time to open up, but was glorious.
