Here is a beautiful wine to celebrate Cabernet Franc Day.
Dark ruby in color with a cloudy reddish rim.
Fruity nose of dried figs, blackberries, cooked cherries, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco and light alcohol.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, blackberries, cooked cherries, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, herbs and coke.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a great Cabernet Franc from Lodi, California. Fruit forward, extracted and tasty, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime, when the tannins show up.
Delicious, but might be too sweet for some. I'd like to revisit it in a year or two.
Good by itself as a sipping wine or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
15.5% alcohol by volume.

This first time experience calls for a conservative approach… Although enjoyable I’m not sure where the benchmark is. I can tell you that this had the taste of Washington state Syrah (think warm BlackBerry syrup) and Body/mouthfeel of a 2nd label rustic Oregon Pinot. Some delightful herb notes aft as matting for the artwork. Well done, without “flaw”....It just wasn’t a wow moment￼, to be honest. However, it paired with a wonderfully with our shepherds pie￼ :) — 6 days ago
Terrific wine. I chilled it and loved it. Cranberries, earthy, spicy, and a pleasant dark roasted coffee bitterness. So much fun. Would totally buy again! — 12 days ago
17/20 (92/100) Аромат тоффи, инжира, изюма, карамели и чёрного чая. Довольно высокая кислотность. Во вкусе пряности, имбирь, карамель, зелёный чай. Отлично! (07.04.2019) #vinnatur2019 — 4 days ago
Intense, musky nose of lychee syrup and crystallized ginger poured over shards of slate and shale. As you move your mouth to the glass, but before you sip, there is an intense saline essence that pops up. Viscous and intensely sweet, but with decent acidity and and long-ass finish (over a minute) where fruit and slate takes turns being primary. Really nice. — 17 days ago
2018 bottle has a smaller label but the bottle itself is embossed with the Michael David name.
I prefer their Freakshow Chardonnay because it's less oaky, but that's just personal preference.
A beautiful example of classically delicious Chardonnay — 3 days ago
