“This is an earthy, smoky style of Cab Franc, resembling that of a Chinon from the Loire Valley. Deep ruby colored, it emits aromas of raspberry, cherry, plum, dried roses, cedar, tobacco, rosemary and incense. The flavors are medium bodied, yet thick and chewy, intermixed with red licorice, cocoa, black tea and minerals. The back picks up pressed berries, grilled nut meats, framboise and kirsch liqueurs and graphite, followed by a slightly herbal (cardamom, sage) moderate tannin and acid finish. 18.5+/20 points.” – Rand Sealy, Review of Washington Wines
