This 59 was Rocking and Rolling. Firing on all cylinders and showing gloriously. My contribution to this evening’s wine gluttony!!!!
It’s absolutely mind blowing how these wines can hold up and pass the test of time. Bravo to old world wine making!! — a month ago
Love this producer. What a great family owned Winery that sticks to the basics of making damn good wine! Is this the best Cabernet Franc I've ever had from Napa? Well, that depends. I do know that they are just about the most consistent Cabernet Franc producer I have had from Napa. To me this variety can vary from year to year quite significantly, and sometimes the variation between producers makes you wonder if there is any hanky-panky going on. Not with them and Cabernet Franc. They understand these grapes, and it shows. A big wine, but not so fruit forward or jammy. Lots of floral here, but then the wine from that point onward is darker for sure. Chocolate, licorice, black cherry. This wine makes you think about everything that is here, and you get a little something different every time. Finishes dark, and right now also very tannic. This one has quite a bit of life left ahead. — a year ago
