Eric Railsback and Justin Willett met when Eric was finishing his college career and Justin was in his early stages of his winemaking career.  Lieu Dit was founded in 2011 by the pair to give homage and produce indigenous varieties from the Loir Valley.  Whole cluster pressing, neutral oak then aging in the tank, this Cab Franc shows all the right characteristics.  Dark berries, cherries, lavender and dried flowers pop on the noise.  Palate is powerful yet elegant as acidity is balanced.  And of course, just a touch of green to remind you what your drinking!
