Diffuse & underdeveloped, but nimble and stony, too.

Smooth though leaves me wanting more spice and/or funk

Has a ferocity & rawness to its tannins that, despite its 12$ price tag & ‘simple’ profile, bear well with the bottle age. Much better day 2. Bell pepper & delicious in its own right.

Too, too noisy and barky, more acidity than I’d been ready for in a sip. #vinewine

Light and acidic and glou glou. I'm into it for something "regular"

Super light, peppery, nice fruit. I think I love the Cabernet franc profile. A good transitional wine from spring to summer

Tastes very young, but very complex. Terrific with food.
