Similarly deep purple-hued the 2019 Cabernet Franc (78% Cabernet Franc 16% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Malbec 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot) offers a kaleidoscope-like array of red blue and black fruits as well as spring flowers cedarwood and leafy herbs. Medium to full-bodied on the palate it's another rich concentrated yet vibrant and fresh 2019 and it's going to evolve for 20 years or more. It's a brilliant bottle of wine! 3600 cases.

Wine Advocate: 95 Points

The 2019 Cabernet Franc is a blend of 78% Cabernet Franc 16% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Malbec 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored the nose springs forth with notions of blueberry preserves redcurrant jelly and boysenberries plus wafts of bay leaves pencil shavings and red roses. The palate is a medium to full-bodied tightly knit structured style with a ripe fine-grained and refreshing line supporting the bright red and blue fruits finishing with fantastic length.

James Suckling: 94 Points

This shows gorgeous and very primary fruit with currants black cherries and hints of flowers. It?s medium-bodied with fine tannins and long intense purity and primary character. Crushed grapes. Fresh acidity. Finesse. So tasty now. Drink or hold.
