Natalie's Score: 91/100

A lovely, long expression of blue fruits, violets, cassis, mushrooms and cigar. Old World style and structure with a deliciously long finish.

Cabernet Franc food pairings: cinnamon and cumin spiced dishes, mild curries, ham, seared tuna with a pepper crust, blue cheese sauces.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely red from a hot vintage in the Loire. Uncharacteristically viscous, with flowers, black and purple fruit jumping out of the glass. These persist on the palate with minerals, black fruit, and underbrush. Drink through 2015. 90 Points
