Young with lots of promise. Very tempting to drink now. Nice balance, structure, fruit, firm tannins.

This is developing into a stunning wine. Dark berries, dried herbs, and slight minty flavor on the finish. Nose has a wonderful leather note. Acidity keeps your mouth watering, and tannins are are in a good place for me but may be considered slightly aggressive. I'll give the rest I have more time to see where this goes.

Great Cab Franc but definitely needed to chill to fully enjoy... Deep garnet color with bright ruby edge. Powerful aromas of mature and complex fruits -- black currants, raspberry, sweet black plum, and blueberry. Fresh violets and notes of cedar, sandalwood, red clay and fresh mint. A velvety texture with layers of red raspberry, cocoa, jasmine tea, tobacco, and ground black pepper. 2012 is a well-structured and balanced wine, though also needs to breathe.

My cab franc binge continues, and this one ranks among the best Cab francs I've ever had. @Carl Fischer and I are "cab franc nerds" (a smaller group of the Wine Nerd Herd crew
