Cab Franc shines through on the nose. Drinking very well with an hour or two of air.

I love the Experiment series from Ovid, but hate that they never repeat the same blend! This is a lovely 2/3 Cab Sauv, 1/3 Cab Franc blend. Deep garnet in the glass, the nose offers florals and loads of red fruit. The palate is currants, chocolate, and some earthiness. Full-bodied and rich texture. The tannins are still quite strong on the finish so definitely give this some air...overall a delicious, beautiful wine.

Beautiful red color and gorgeous nose fueled by the 25% Cab Franc. On the palate, young and a touch harsh on opening, but smoothed out nicely with air and a joy to drink on nights two and three.
