Tasting:

    He said: Slightly chilled before drinking. Clear, ruby red color. Very light fruit aromas. Slightly sour fruit taste and a short nondescript finish. This was just OK with the grilled salmon bout only just not good drinking alone after the dinner. A disappointing Cabernet Franc for me.

    She said: Our wine steward suggested a red wine for our tuna main course and we agreed especially since it was a Cabernet Franc, a grape we have enjoyed in the past. Sad to say it was a disappointment with little bouquet, or taste.
