Solid expression of Cab Franc, but doesn't exceed expectations. Crunchy veggie, tart red fruit, hard stone minerality. Definitely quaffable.

Red color with purple reflectuons; to the nose it smells BlackBerry with hint of wood. To the palate very silky and smooth and hint of spices

Lots of raspberries and pie crust. Soft red for sure. Not very in your face. The more it opens up the more alcohol emits from the nose though. I would get again for the price though I would be curious to try an older vintage.

This Cab Franc needs 20 min before making any judgments. After that, you can get the stalky tannins and spicy - fresh red fruit, full of freshness and good acidity.. Little oak or maybe not oak.

A Cabernet Franc to pair with French lentil and garlic sausage soup. Medium to medium-light body, tannins are noticeable but disappear with hearty food. Would be a great wine for roast turkey or pork roast.

Fruitier than I expected. Paired well with Halibut.
