TASTING NOTE: John Hare and partners opened The Hare in late 2016, with a dramatic red brick, zen space astride 20 acres on Highway 55 (the wines are made off-site).There are three tiers - Jack Rabbit, Crownland and Frontier. This cab franc-merlot blend has a nicely lifted, classic and pretty nose of raspberry, pepper, herbs and light oak. It is medium weight, quite smooth and deep with some oak richness. Very good to excellent length. Tasted March 2018. Score - 90 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, April 4, 2018) Price $ 25.50
Bottle Size 750 mL
