2004 Domaine du Collier Saumur Le Ripaille - France, Loire Valley, Anjou-Saumur, Saumur (8/9/2009)
Opened in Michigan last weekend by Squirrel Jam at his vacation rental in South Haven, Michigan. We were in town and made arrangements to meet up for some wine. This was a well made wine which did not show any of the green notes which can be commonplace in Loire valley cabernet franc. Medium to light bodied. Notes of blackberry and cool red fruit. Solid acidity. 89 points.
