Estate Conn Valley Cabernet Franc 2014

9.3

Not only does the winery have gorgeous views atop Conn Valley in Napa overlooking Lake Hennessy, the wines are delicious...but more importantly, the people are gracious and kind. Highly recommend visiting.

Though their other wines get more fanfare (mainly because there is more to go around), their CabFranc is always my favorite offering. At a whopping 2 barrels of production, getting access can be a bit tricky. For a cab franc, there is zero green pepper notes. Aromatically, it is a combo of rich, ripe red and black fruits all dipped in fondue chocolate, baking spices like cinnamon and clove with a woodsy note like sandalwood. While decadent in profile, there is plenty of acidity here to keep this from being too flabby. Notes of Christmas spice cake, red and black licorice, Black Forest cake shavings and a hint of herbs on the finish. Still quite youthful, this seems to just be entering a drink phase.

@Bryan Kesting : Was a wine club member here for a quite a while. Solid across the board. Winemaker here also makes wine for Jack Winery in Atlas Peak and a few other small labels. They also do a cabernet, a mountain proprietary, Grenache and a white blend. Happy to send you a bottle of those or open one next time you’re down here.

Rosé Blend 2019

My favorite rosé. Plush, creamy, nice body, lovely floral notes with ripe strawberries and angel food cake. Tastes great chilled and at ambient which, in my experience, is not too common. — 7 days ago

Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2006

Pours out like motor oil. Blackberry jam, chocolate fudge, fruit cake and many other sweet things on the nose. Deceptive, because the palate is pretty dry! And there’s a nice tartness. Heavy woody tannins are a bit overwhelming. This could use maybe 20 more years in the bottle. Or drink over several weeks. — 8 days ago
