Smells like an old cellar in a Dusty cave..

Roasted plum, tobacco, cigar box, pure cherry juice, thick, rich, heavy bodied.
Acidified flint finish with a lingering blueberry hue. Worth schlepping back from Vinos del mundo, in the Gran Torre, Santiago Chile.

Opened for the usual couple of hours and needed. Waited one month after travel before opening.
Worth the wait. Yum! South America.

Great structure, shining example of how a new world Cab Franc should taste. Red fruit mingling with black fruit, pipe tobacco, cedar...dusty tannins and a lovely acidity.

Gran Reserva Cab Franc. Very nice structure, tannic backbone, and dusty fruit balance. Enjoyable and age worthy.

Soft and subtle - traditional new world cabF notes. Nothing special but very drinkable at price point.

Have to admit this was pretty disappointing.
