The night after Thanksgiving I am still giving thanks to family and friends for the great gifts they bring me. Tonight I have opened the 2015 Bernard Baudry Chinon Les Granges. On the nose there is roasted red pepper, raspberry sauce, ripe strawberries, some matchbox, herbal notes and a bit of soil background. On the palate the green bell pepper is ever present, sour cherry, tart raspberry, under ripe plum, an herbal note and crushed gravel. This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity, medium smooth tannin that goes into the medium to long tingly finish. Continue having a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. Nostrovia!

Cabernet Franc from 30something yo vines. Planted on gravel and sand, raised in concrete. Very slight welcoming brett on nose, at first tartly fruity, somewhat vegetal. But it is the rocks and sand that linger. Lean, savory, crunchy. Thanksgiving in the Shire.

Primary and slightly reductive with horse saddle and brambly fruit.

Herbaceous, dry, somewhat oaky. Not as peppery as many cab francs.

Lots of cherry and plum flavors. A touch grapey. Good with ribs, which was not expected.

Barnyard begets dark fruit in this easy drinking medium bodied beauty. Even tastier alongside our steak tartare

Dry as a bone and strong enough to stand up to a Yemeni spice
