From the 2019 WineSnob.blog Winemaker of the year. I have been looking forward to exploring his work with Cab Franc.
Deep inky color. Aromatic nose for a Cab Franc. Big plum and blackberry on the front and mineral earthy terroir on the back. Big bold fruity body dominated by tart plum and blackberry. Heavy chewy tannins make a delayed entrance and turn slightly creamy once it breathes a little. Nice seamless transition to a long woody, tannic finish capped with moderate spice.
This wine is well built and very approachable now. It should age nicely over the next few years. Wines like this are why I choose to stay off the beaten path.
Thanks you Bill & Jane. I’m looking forward to many more great vintages.
