I’m not a big Cab Franc fan but Falstaff could change my opinion

Rich dense and still very young. Just a whiff of tertiary notes. Alcohol is a bit high though.

Split decision on this; some of us loved it but some were disappointed

Drinking so well and was improving the longer it was open. So fragrant and aromatic...crushed potpourri, cherry pipe tobacco and baked blackberry pie. Dusty on the palate and still youthful. Dark cocoa dusted dates, roasted plum, blackberry and raspberry pie with strong acidity and tannin. A great drinking window. Thanks @Keith Fisher

Low expectations for 2011 make this even better.
