Rambunctious and bracing, heady tomato fuzz and black-cherry burnt fruit leather go head-to-head, but there is strawberry Twizzler at the end of the tunnel. Dried spit and worn leather work gratingly from nose to mouthfeel, introducing a warm, rustic, and rather simple fruit to your whole family. The lopsided tear of a country song cauterizes the gash left by pithy dry steel, searing and sizzling into the strong herb-tincture finish.
This is BEAUTIFUL Loire cab franc, holy wow and under 25 bucks.
