I bought this for a Cabernet Franc blind tasting. 15 people tasted it (mostly native Californians, but some transplants). Hands down it won last place.

Review notes:
This had a nice cherry tartness to it, but the dryness was almost indescribable. About-to-die-of-thirst kind of dry. Hard to pay attention to much else because of this. Definitely good blending stock, though.

If you want a Cabernet Franc which everyone will like, we recommend
1. Fenestra Cab Franc
2. Trader Joe Label Cab Franc
3. Elena Cab Franc 2008
