"How, sir, would you make a ship sail against the wind and currents by lighting a bonfire under her deck? I pray you, excuse me, I have not the time to listen to such nonsense."~ Napoleon Bonaparte, when told of Robert Fulton's steamboat, 1800s.
They say Cab Franc is all about violet, but who the heck can remember what a violet smells like? Nice ripe red fruit notes fill up the mouth, rounded out by a savoury hint of cedar from barrel aging. Naysayers get none... it’s way too good.
