Hints of bass slappin funk without going full barnyard. Like Red Hot Chili Peppers late 80's funk. Light, earthy, decent acidity. A little tart upfront like bitter pink grapefruit pith. Medium tannins with a lingering black tea finish. Faint hints of black tart currants. Perfect summer night wine with a platter of good oily charcuterie and cheese. Try it with a slight chill on it which isn't at all taboo.

Cologne perfume nose. A wisp of skunkiness. Soft body, brambly, and finishes cherry skins. LOVELY!!

Classical old world funk for the smell as well cherry it’s an easy drink this is not a thinker, this is not a sit down and discuss the finned details of cab Franc. It is however a easy drinker very simple, which you know sometimes, that’s exactly what you need so if you want just an easy bottle of red wine that has a old world influence than this is your grab. And it’s not bad it’s just not something to write home about.
