Can't find wine woot from the top header bar or from the right nav bar.
Edit:
Weird it's all back now.

I do try to x-post my TNs to CT (minus the monkeys and other shenanigans) and have noticed that you do the same, it is appreciated.

Also really appreciate that Cesare posts the specs into CT.

Thought it would be a bit redundant since Cesare posted a link to the previous offer containing those notes. I am tempted though, even if only to 1-up RJ who has the exact same # of QPs as I do, haha.

I went ahead and did it. We will see if this is something worth keeping up for notes that don't get into CT.

Oh, ok....

cmaldoon's notes: "Had this wine at home on Friday night with home cooked tapas

Color: very slightly purplish red. The level of pigmentation was relatively light, darker than almost any Pinot but lighter than most cabs.

Nose: half an hour in it smelled of cranberry juice/ cherry juice (very fruity). Some green pepper/jalapeño and a hint of black pepper. Later in the night it seemed to pick up a Eucalyptus note and kinda smelled like wild berry ricola cough drops (in a good way)

Palate: Half an hour in this was definitely the cran cherry from on the nose. Bright and fruity. There was a round oakiness in the vanilla/molasses realm and then a very slightly bitter green jalapeño note. Bitter gets to me and this was under that threshold. A positive and interesting note rather than a distraction. Fine chalky tannins on the finish. As the night went on the green pepper note rose and then fell off, the fruitiness darkened to a mixed berry candy flavor and there were slightly more tannins but still quite fine.

Overall: no way this is 15.2 alc for one. It hides it amazingly well. The wine is very smooth with a medium body and goes down VERY EASILY. This is quite fruity but did not taste "commercial" to either of the tasters (we were glad). The green pepper note adds interest and I would be fine serving this wine to either neophytes or people who have wine frequently.

I think I'm in for a set as daily drinker material. Anyone in the Bay Area want to share shipping costs? "

Klez's notes: "We had a taste of this at a recent SoCal gathering! Wondering when it was going to show up!

We tasted all of these blind except for varietal identity. My notes say this wine is bright purple in colour. Nose is deep dark cherry with some fresh plum, and it's also very savoury with some herbaceous notes to go along with the fruit. Nothing vegetal that I noticed (I do like a little bell pepper in my Can Franc).

Palate was very fruity, strongly tannic, leather on the finish. I found there to be something slightly bitter as well, not to the point of unpleasant iirc. I found this wine to be relatively easy-drinking and once it has a little more time to age would be nicer. Say 1-3 more years before it's ready for prime time.

Once we unbagged the bottle, I was surprised (as were others) at the 15.2% alcohol. It hid that level very well, although that could have been a contributor to the bitterness on the finish.

At $18/bottle + ship/tax this is a decent but not stellar value, imo. Assuming you like the higher octane style, that is. "

Kyle's notes: "Had this at klez's. I liked it more than he did, but I like a little more fruit in my wines than he does, generally. To compare to Toothy II which some of you have had, this is bigger, a little less food friendly, it doesn't have as pronounced of a green streak, but it's flat out delicious for my palate. At under $20/btl, I like this deal. Not screaming, but pretty fair price. I would describe this as a pretty clear CA interpretation of CF. Lots of fruit, body, and much higher (but very well-hidden) alcohol compared to the Loire. "

losthighwayz' notes: "I too had this at the recent SoCal woot gathering. I echo what Klez and Kyle have said. I thought it was a fruit forward interpretation of CF and though good, not what I prefer in Cab Francs (rubber, dirt, green peppers). I think that it would be a crowd pleaser for non CF drinkers and the price is fair IMO"

Cyradia's notes: "I bought the cab franc last time it was offered and I enjoyed it. I opened it side by side with a woot cellars toothsteinn. I remember liking them both, but the toothy had more fruit. Cab franc was good out of the bottle venturied, but maybe even a little better the next day. Just like you'd expect...really shun when paired with the food (roast beef).

If I have another good food pairing to put with it before this offer times out, I'll open another bottle and try to jot down some more detailed tasting notes. "

No, but it would have been just as easy to click the previous offer link in Cesare's post.

Although I did pull Cyradia's notes from a separate offer for the same wine, so... bonus!

Nice. Now I can be lazy and go back to enjoying my coffee.

For anybody on the fence, I'd jump in. I didn't regret the purchase at all and if I didn't still have some left (and a ton of wine already on its way to me) I'd buy more. I think it's better than your average $15 bottle (think it's cheaper this time, yeah?) and a good cab franc to have in your collection.

Too lazy to muck with it on a Nexus, way too easy to click the prior offer link.

What I'd like to see is a comparison of this to those WineSmith CF's I've had, liked, and want a reappearance of, and I know from those notes posted by others at least one has had both, and more!
If this is anywhere close I'm in.

I figured a generic name would imply that it's more of a posting service for the lazy. But I'll fill out the profile accordingly to hopefully eliminate confusion.

I believe I left notes on the last offer. I've been very remiss at leaving notes in CT recently I know.

This wine is a CF of the lighter, smoother style. Definitely varietally correct notes of red berry and green pepper. Good acidity, goes well with food. I use it as a daily drinker because I have no clue how CF ages and I need more wines to simply drink and enjoy.

I recommend this wine at this price.

Yeah, I found those, but as the door was not latched just had to kick it in.

How does this compare the CF I assume you tasted with Clark and Mike?
