"A 100%-Cabernet Franc from mountainous El Dorado County! This wine’s crazy good with tons of varietal character — woodsy tannins, touch of green pepper, vials of violets — that’s also packed with plenty of great plum, cassis and savory notes of leather and mocha, all in a memorable package. With plenty of grip and acid, enjoyed over a meal, it gets better by the minute and has the depth to age 5 - 10 years, too."

"Smooth and silky with plum, spice and hints of smoke and mocha; sipple, dense and balanced with good length" - Anthony Dias Blue

"Cabernet Franc is the best Bordeaux variety grown in the Sierra Foothills, and this is a pretty good one. It's dry and classically structured, with rich flavors of cherries, herbs, and oak, and a briary character of wild mountain berries." - S.H.

"Ripe, supple and complex plum and black cherry fruit is intense without being heavy, with some ultraripe notes that provide a hint of raisin. Ends with chewy tannins. Drink now through 2011" - James Laube

"It really impresses for its dry finesse, a wine that exhibits true gout de terroir in the earthy, mushroomy flavors with their subtle hint of black cherries and violets."

"Oak softens the earthy, mineral tones of El Dorado fruit in this smooth, smoky black wine. It feels tightly built, ready over the next several years for a grilled steak."

"A franc interpretation of the foothills, this rustic wine has a ferrous backbone and the warm snap of a pine fire. Built for brisket."

"Here, the green herb accents and olive fruit character of cabernet franc play against a jazzy acidity energizing this red for grilled bass with green olive tapenade."

"Aromas of dill, jalapeno and toasty oak. Balanced and approachable. Nice ripe fruit."
