Found this is the mail upon returning from my European travels earlier this year. Each year David Franz seems to send out a bottle of his “Chrissy Goon” to his good customers. Honoured that he considers me to be one of them. By the looks of the bottle, it appears all his children got involved in the design process.
Rich and heady wine. Raspberry coulis, dark macerated fruit. Coconut, vanilla, hint of bacon and pork & fennel sausages. In other words, deeply fruited, meaty and spicey.
Very rich and mouthfilling with a ripe, velvety texture.
To quote a friend whom I shared the wine with, “This is F***ing Great”
