Rich style, good oak influence. Missing some vegetal notes that I love so much about Cab Franc. Overall enjoyable.

Sometimes, a few days is all a bottle needs to unwind. Leftover from New Year's Day. A delight. Graceful, expressive and focused. Showing tart cherries and fresh turned earth, a dusting coca powder and dried herbs with just the right amount of spice. The tannins have relaxed. While they were tight and kept hold of the freshmess, it is now showing as if just opened. If you have a few of these in your cellar, hold and hide. You will be rewarded in a few years from now. #flxwine #nyswine #nydrinksny #drinklocal #wine #cabernetfranc

Herbal with red and black fruit on the nose, sleek with complex flavors. Great balance and concentration. Smokey, savory finish. Went great tonight with leftover tri tip and sautéed asparagus. Easy drinking. Excellent value, drinks above its price point.

Tasty. A bit of VA helping it head-fake a juicy Nebbiolo or Ribera del Duero, so even better for my needs.
