Good juice, just needs time to open…like…a few days. I don’t think it will be everyone’s cup of tea; but if you’re a fan of Cab Franc, you’re gonna love this!

Heavy dark fruit, blackcurrant, coffee, eucalyptus, a good chunk of acidity and a long finish. Quite blatantly Cabernet Franc, due to the dominant green bell pepper and vegetal aromas. There’s a lot going-on in the glass; and like I said, either be prepared to decant, or lay it down for a year or three.


Whilst Writing this Review I was also…

Watching the Saturday Night Live “Women of SNL” rerun.



Available in Jacksonville from Riverside Liquors and/or Royal Palm. Call first to order/confirm stock.
