Was an OK (not great) wine when we got it. I don't know why we've waited so long to open it again. Big mistake! Very little fruit left. No tannins. Little, if any, Cab Franc characteristics. However, just enough to make it a barely acceptable sipping wine while we're waiting for dinner to cook. I just hate to dump a bottle!

I've had very little success with this varietal from domestic producers. A bummer to pour liquid other than Plumber down the drain. WW
