Very full bodied, almost spicy. No oakiness (you can always count on any rec of mine to NOT have a sweet, vanilla finish - which is what "oak" means) and so damn sippable, it should be fined. Or I could just let go and let Jesus. Because it's wonderful. It's a bit like Darioush, if you've ever had that? And considering that Darioush is $90 a bottle and this is about $35, not too shabby. It's a special release, so there aren't many bottles available. I bought one on a whim (I like the region) and will be going back to add a few bottles to my wine cellar (aka, the wine fridge. Cellar sounds nicer.) :D
I've had their Inkblot Cabernet Franc, as well, and quite liked it. I like this one better.
And if your ears were burning today, it may be because I shared the Coin Project story with my son's therapist/medical team. They all were amazed at the generous nature of online friends. I, of course, was not surprised. *beams* That was a real bright spot in a very dark time for my boy, and we all got a bit emotional at how lovely people can be to a complete stranger.
CHEERS! *clinks glass with you*
