No More Chateau Because FFC

 Deep glass-staining ruby with orange edges.  Really intoxicating nose… for a short while.  Instant tannin hit with aging fruit and thinning middle.  Meager finish.  Fell apart noticeably in decanter over a couple hours.  Fruit will not outlast everything else.  Note this is not your supermarket Chateau Souverain, but HOME VINEYARD.  Not even sure you can buy these anymore.  A tasting room does not exist since Francis Ford Copolla moved into the old Chateau.  Online sales only through a weird middle-man site.  All very strange.  Too bad.  Always one of my favorite labels.
