Tasted On 12/12/2009
Opened with Ryan and Desiree Bell at the house after Southern Orthopaedics Holiday Party. Quite good although maybe not as good as I was expecting. Continued to open and grow during the 2+ hours we drank. Very complex with oaky notes and a great finish. Probably could cellar for at least another 5 years; a very young Cabernet Franc. As a note, bottle was purchased in NYC in early 2008 and wasnt stored well in apartment for about 6-months (Exposure to sunlight and heat before shades were installed). Might help to explain some of the taste.
