Wine Awards for this Cabernet Franc


Aaron: This had an earthy, vegetable nose with tomato and peppers.  Medium bodied with bright, earthy fruits.  It definitely needed to calm down a little right out of the bottle to subdue the peppery finish.  After a while, with some air, the strawberries and blueberries started to pop out.  89 points

Teri: Juicy cherry and chocolate covered raspberry on the nose are greeted by great and unique flavor on the wine. I taste cherry, rhubarb, and oak first which then blends into vanilla and blackberry pie. Hearty tannins but extremely smooth! Winning bottle. 93 points
