"A blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 39% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Flying Pig displays with a dark ruby center and all of the markers for a classic and well-made wine. A myriad of aromas burst from the glass with juicy red and dark-berried freshness upfront, followed by elements of roasted bell pepper, juicy plum and dark cherry along with an array of red and purple flowers and a subtle lingering mineral note. Medium to full-bodied, the wine elegantly slides across the palate, oozing with precision and finesse. A delicate, yet growing flavor of baking spices grows in intensity, showcasing a soft, yet impeccably balanced expression of French oak. The mid-palate displays magnificent balance with energetic acidity, freshness of fruit and skillfully managed tannins before offering a long, sophisticated finish. As an admirer of Cabernet Franc, I thoroughly enjoyed this expression, since the wine is rich and voluminous without being overdone. Only 191 cases made." - Anthony Mueller, robertparker.com (Aug 2020)
