An unusually warm April night calls for grilled steak, which calls for delicious Cabernet Franc. 08 Les Picasses doesn't disappoint. Dark fruit, firm tannins, bright acid and that signature Chinon minerality matched perfectly with Butcher @ Larder dry-aged porterhouse. #winning

It has been a long week of meetings and job visits, so I am treating myself to a Loire beauty a Loire Valley Chinon. At first opening a bit pungent, but I like that with lots of good aromas. I am getting big notes of black currant, rasperry, violets and graphite. On the palate the raspberry comes through with plum and the typical vegetal notes, bell pepper. There is also earthy components, medium acidity, medium tannins with a long dying finish. Very nice and I like it.

Manure + Flowers = This wine. Depending on your palate, this is yummy or no way. IMO this needs 10+ years.

Poblano notes all over the nose & palate which give way to dark cherry & black tea earthiness. Tannins are mild, yet present. Wonder if this vintage will be one of the long term agers. Raffault Cabernet Franc is always consistent and a truly great value.
