A nice in between style of Cab Franc. Not super ripe but nothing green either. Purple in color, maroon at the rim. The nose is nice. Dusty with black cherries and slight cigar tobacco. On the palate, this is medium bodied. Nice black cherry fruit. A bit of tobacco underneath. Nice finish. This is drinking well now and should continue for the next five to seven years. It drinks easy on its own but will also work with grilled foods and roasts.
