Burrowing Owl's Franc was just released this month and it may be a bit premature to start quaffing it now. There are some light but assertive tannins that add to a somewhat disjointed early presentation. Great aromas and a firm structure with plenty of berry flavours tempered with an attractive bitter closing. Buy now and cellar to at least Christmas. If you wait until Christmas to buy it you will be out of luck; I'm sure this will sell quickly. This wine should really come into its own at about 2007.
