If you can still find it for $50.00 its a deal. Some places have raised their price to $150.00 since the news of it being # 1

Michael David Winery (Michael & David Phillips)

Inkblot Cabernet Franc 2015

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.

91 points.

$35.

Veraton Campo de Borja Garnacha 2015

A nose of fruit, vanilla, oak, sweet spices and smoke. Still quite tannic on the palette with ok balance. Full bodied, heavy and concentrated black fruits with plenty of oak. Crowd pleaser. — 4 months ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

This was phenomenal. It’s incredible how youthful and powerful a 29-year old wine can be. Wonderful spicy nose, not a hint of age, beautiful color, great complexity, acidity, and length. This was a real pleasure and very memorable experience. — 4 months ago
