A very distinct earthy character with a good amount of fresh berry fruit still here with a nice hand of acidity and freshness very nuanced finish big bit still fresh. Finish 45+ most excellent

Holy smokes. Not full throttle with extraction or oak, but in it for the long haul, as the name suggests. Exceptional aromatics from Cab Franc and a graceful mid palate from Merlot with a bit of weight supplied by Cab. For me, the best of these three grapes in living harmony.

Nice rich color, light berry in the nose, pretty acidic and tannins come through strongly, especially in the finish
