Headlining a most impressive debut lineup from this new boutique is this two-barrel reserve. Sourced from the Two Blondes (Andrew Will) vineyard, it's a thick and dense and delicious wine, packed with black cherry, chocolate and espresso. It belongs in the top ranks of all Washington Cab Francs. Yes, the alcohol is up there, but the smooth power of this wine more than justifies it.
