I liked this, but I’m in a quandary ..I missed the CF quality. It tasted more Petite Sirah- like. Heavy & dark, with good acidity.

Big fruit, blueberry compote and vanilla, with a silky smooth texture. Such a consistent cab Franc year after year after year. A really fun wine.

In between youthful and aged, I would've held it had I know Ln where it was. Dried fruit dominating the nose but still lively on the palate. Long finish and not showing as much Franc character had I hoped. Always a good bottle though!

Pop and pour goodness. Very smooth for a young Franc. Pretty blue fruits, very good friendly. Nice job!

Plump, dense and inky. Tons of oak and silky, slightly jammy raspberry and blackberry.
