Blockbuster! Deep and expansive. Needs a few hours to open. Long finish. More structured and tighter than the '13... which I may have liked more. But '14 needs some time. ... and well deserved of the 24 / 100 WS spot.

Complex, elegant, remarkably graceful cab franc. A dance upon the palate with smooth tannins, food friendly acidity, and notes of well ripened cherry.
