2006, much better after being open a few hours. Still drinking well but not going to get any better. Drink now.

totally surprised me. 10 yrs old and still packing gobs of fruit. Color was bright purple, hardly faded at edges.

This wine finally grew up! Tastes last year and it was youthful and fruit forward. Now, nuance driven, Bordeaux-style aromatics, leaner on the palate and super fancy delicious.

Pop and pour, this is at it's prime. Expressive nose. Knitted together well, no elbows, just smooth with a med long finish.

Wow. Stole the show. In such an amazing place in its evolution. Tannins have softened, aromas are through the roof. Just pure joy. Drink it!! #cabernetfranc #napavalley #pridevineyards
