90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010

($30) Vivid ruby. Dark berries, cherry, violet and dusty cocoa powder on the nose.

The tannins are fine-grained and not at all dry or hard. Great fruit and clarity here, as well as more rich, black fruits than one usually finds in Loire cabernet franc.
