91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This young, fruity wine comes from vines owned by the Pitault-Landry family. It has an edge of tannins and freshly spicy fruits. Smoky, perfumed and packed with berry flavors, the wine will develop further. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: A rich ruby red with notes of violets and red berry fruits, this Cabernet Franc is nicely layered on the palate with brightness running throughout and just a touch of smoke mixed in with some purple fruits. Soft waves of mineral with a nice soft tannin make this a true delight ...

Wine Enthusiast: "This is an attractive, black-fruit-flavored wine. Light tannins and acidity are already well integrated and balanced with the fruits. The wine is ready to drink. (RV)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation. Julien is the winemaker, Stephane in charge of the viticulture and Vincent oversees the administration and sales. Over the last decades the property has grown from 5 to 80 hectares that stretch across the appellation including some very select parcels in...

Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the intrusion of oak--which he hasn't used in production since 1986. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot of Cabernet Franc planted in 1934, is prized for its power, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and the large format bottle will have helped to preserve freshness.

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Impressively saturated ruby-red color. Complex aromas of black raspberry, kirsch, Valrhona chocolate, smoke and gunflint. Tactile and quite concentrated; really dense with extract. Ripe acidity gives the deep flavors lovely clarity. A real fruit essence: the wine somewhat chewy tannins and alcohol are hidden by fruit. (ST)" (12/1998) K&L Notes: Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the...

Watkins Family is an obscure and, naturally, a family-owned little winery in the Sonoma Valley, focusing on mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Randall Watkins also makes wine at a venerable estate that's a little better known to fans of classic, mountain-grown California Cabernet from an older school: the renewed Laurel Glen Vineyard. The Bugay Vineyard sits above the fog line atop the beautiful Mayacamas Mountains between the towns of Santa Rosa and Calistoga.

Chateau de Miniere is making some outstanding Cabernet Franc in the Loire Valley but one of their truly standout wines is this sparkling red. A fulll skin contact red with bubbles in it. The wine finishes its fermentation in the bottle in Petillant Natural style leading to a unique drinking experience. You have to try it to believe it. *Natural Wine*

2016 Bodegas Aleanna "Gran Enemigo" Cabernet Franc Gualtallary Argentina
Top Pick!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2016 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard transported me back to the classical wines from the Bordeaux of yesteryear, with austerity and with no room for sweetness or creamy texture. This is about chalk and umami, salty and tasty, with the clout and wilderness of Gualtallary; its electric freshness and fine tannins; the expression of Cabernet Franc (with some Merlot) in the poor, stony and limestone-rich soils from the high-altitude vineyards; and the intensity this altitude provides, as there...

Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire. All his hand-harvested cuvées are based on vine age and soil composition, and the wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel with a light fining and no filtration before bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot planted in 1934, has power, depth and grace; this, their flagship wine, will improve for the next 7-9 years but can be enjoyed now for those of you who like a mouthful of wine.

93 points James Suckling: "This is such a delicious cabernet franc with blackberry and floral notes on the nose and palate, which draw you in and invite you to drink. Medium body. Round, creamy tannins and a delicious finish. The use of whole berries really makes this. Drink or hold" (02/2020) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The expressive and elegant 2017 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc has some 8% Malbec in the blend. It's a subtle red with nuance and detail, very harmonious, aromatic, even floral within the spicy character of the variety. The pa...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "It would be easy to mistake this herbally complex, texturally taut and tantalizingly fresh Cabernet Franc for a Loire Valley bottling, which is the inspiration. Aromas of just-ripe boysenberry, green tobacco and wet rocks lead into a tightly woven palate full of crunchy cranberry, chaparral shrubs and lingering carnation. Beware: bottle empties easily. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)" (02/2021)

When Jean Noel Millon took over winemaking and farming at his family's estate in 1998, he represented the seventh generation to do so. The 10-hectare farm is certified organic and Millon complements the soil with herbal teas and homemade composts to strengthen the vines' natural defenses. Winery tasting notes: "It is the emblematic wine of the estate with its aromatic expression of red fruit. The palate is crunchy and juicy with ripe, fresh fruit which gives it good drinkability." *organic*

92 points Vinous: "A rush of sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange, dark spice and graphite race across the palate in Lieu Dit's 2018 Cabernet Franc Sans Soufre. The 2018 exudes striking purity in its flavors, with a good bit of aromatic intensity from the 33% whole clusters. This is such a beautiful and expressive wine today, even though it was just bottled.

93 points Vinous: "From one of Baudry’s top limestone sites. Aged 12 months in 2- to 5-year-old barrels, then rests for nine months in cement tanks. Still young and rambunctious, very juicy and full of energy, very like Pinot-like. It’s one of the fruitier Baudry expressions, with lots of black and sour cherry, some blackberry and tomato, and light stoniness on the finish. Give this a year or two and it will pay back your patience. (JW)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: 94-96 pts from Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This sample was tasted from cement cuve, the wi...

90 points Vinous: "Le Temps des Cerises (or “Cherry Time!” as Jérôme jokes) is Domaine de la Noblaie’s everyday Chinon and represents half of their Cabernet Franc production. Bright ruby. Classic fresh and savory Chinon nose, delivering lots of black pepper, tomato and olive. On the palate, thought, it’s plush and fruity, with fleshy plum and ripe cherry, balanced by chalk and more black pepper. Aged five months in stainless steel. (JR)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: 92-94 Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "Jérôme’s entry-level red cuvée comes from the majority o...

94 points James Suckling: "A spicy and deliciously fresh Cabernet Franc that shows dried herbs, cedar, dried blueberries and lavender. The palate has a soft and velvety mouthfeel, but remains dialed-in with edgy acidity and firm tannins." (03/2019) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pure Cabernet Franc 2017 Pirque Vineyard sticks out like a sore thumb when tasted next to the other wines from Maule with its minty and creamy Maipo Cabernet personality. It comes from a vineyard planted in the 1980s in Pirque at around 700 meters in altitude. Th...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lots of blackcurrants, espresso, chocolate, tobacco, and classic Saint-Emilion minerality emerge from the 2018 Clos Saint-Julien, a rich, full-bodied, beauty with incredible character and depth. Flawlessly balanced, with brilliant tannins and a pure, seamless yet powerful style, it's a magical 2018 that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise for 15-20 years in cold cellars. It's a true 'wow' wine in the vintage." (03/2021) 95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Clos Saint-Julien is much more understated from bottle than it wa...

2012 Morlet "Force de la Nature" Napa Valley Cabernet Franc
Back In Stock!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nearly perfect Cabernet Franc Force de la Nature comes from a parcel of Cabernet Franc vines planted on the gravelly bench of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. This cuvée is only produced in great vintages, which, of course, the 2012 and 2013 are. As with all of Luc Morlet’s wines, there are no acid adjustments, no enzymes and no manipulation. The inky/blue/purple-colored, aromatic 2012 Cabernet Franc Force de la Nature boasts a floral, full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, fabulous intensity and notes of wet rock...

Cabernet Franc doesn't fly solo often in domestic wines, it's usually reserved for Bordeaux style blends to add aromatic complexity and fruit notes. But when it's done right, it can be fantastic. The 2009 Rosa Mystica from Owen Roe is a case in point. Made from fruit grown at four Yakima Valley vineyards (Red Willow, Olsen, Union Gap and the Owen Roe Estate), fermented in small lots and aged for 14 months mostly used French oak barrels (the winery says the new barrels made up less than 10% of the mix) and racked only once, the wine is a delight. Its nose...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cheval Blanc is blended of 59.5% Merlot, 37.2% Cabernet Franc and 3.3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose is incredibly youthful yet not so shy as some other 2016s at this stage, giving wonderfully intense scents of red currants, black cherries, wild blueberries and violets with nuances of star anise, cinnamon stick, rose hip tea, cigar box and wood smoke plus a touch of beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has jaw-dropping elegance and depth, offering up layer upon l...

Baudry's Les Granges may be his workhorse Chinon but it always lands as one of the sexiest and most fulfilling Chinons released each year. From vines aged 30+ years all planted over sand and gravelly soils, this is bright, refreshing and exotic. All fermentation and elevage are done in concrete tanks preserving that vibrant fruit. An outstanding value from one of the leaders in Chinon.

In keeping with the growing trend of many fine boutique producers in northern California, Dewey's makes low-intervention, small-lot, single-site expressions from some of the Golden State's unheralded yet exceptional vineyards. Winemaker's notes: "In 2018 we jumped at the opportunity to work with a couple tons of cab franc from Barsotti. The grapes were fermented native, 100% whole-cluster, and punched down twice a day with two bare feet. We pressed gently to a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel barrels. Other than sulfur the wine received no ...

97 points Decanter: "The en primeur sample of the 2019 vintage, as I did not taste in the spring. Full of vivacity and austerity, dominated by the Cabernet Franc, showing roundness and depth to the black fruits as they open, with clear bilberry, cassis and blueberry, a ton of gentle charred smoke notes and graphite. Strong opulence and huge tannins. A wine that is going to age for decades. (JA)" (10/2020) Jancis Robinson: "Compact, dense and structured but just a little austere at present. Fresh and lifted with a hint of tea and floral notes, depth of ...

98 points Vinous: "The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Matarocchio, the estate's pure Cabernet Franc, is stunning. Dark, sumptuous and super-expressive, the 2016 is a seamless, exotic beauty. Even with all of its richness, the 2016 remains finessed and nuanced to the core, with exceptional balance and tons of energy. This vibrant Bolgheri Cabernet Franc will drink well for many years.

91 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This cuvée brings us to the soils of Bourgueil, another entry-level cuvée analogous to La Source. It used to be called La Coudraye, but the name has been changed now to reflect the sourcing of fruit from a number of other parcels alongside La Coudraye, including three lieux-dits named Les Sables, Les Pins and Les Perrières with mostly sandy soils. I have to own up to an error in my previous tasting note, as Côte 50 refers to the altitude of these various parcels, which sit on the côte at an altitude of 50 metres ...

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2004 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc (93WE, 92WS, 91W&S, 90ST), 1-bottle of 2005 Pride Mountain Napa-Sonoma Counties Merlot (93WS, 91CG, 91ST), and 2-bottles of 2005 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc (91CG, 91RP, 91ST). Of the 2004 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc,Wine Enthusiast writes: "This is a fun wine, easy to like. It’s also a serious wine. That’s a hard juggling act, but Pride pulls it off so well. Shows the lighter side of the Cabernet family, with a silky, almost delicate body framing cherry and oak flavors. Yet there’s tremendous depth, and the exquisite tension between fruit, acidity, tannins and wood is as intricate as a Cirque du Soleil trapeze act." (03/2007)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2010 James Cole "Privado" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend and 2-bottles of 2011 James Cole "Privado" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend.

Bid on this magnum of 2007 Jonata "El Alma de Jonata" Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Franc (1.5L) (97JD, 97RP, 96WE, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to their Bordeaux blends, the El Alma de Jonata is the estate’s Cabernet Franc- dominated blend and normally incorporates 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and smaller components of Merlot and Petit Verdot. The 2007 El Alma de Jonata got a big “Wow” in my notes and is an incredible Cabernet Franc from California. Deep, rich and layered, with full-bodied richness, massive structure and ripe tannin, it offers up complex notes of chocolate, black currants, lead pencil shavings and toast as well as no hard edges and blockbuster length. It should continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no harm in drinking it now either. (JD)" (08/2013)

Of the 2005 Pride Mountain Napa-Sonoma Counties Merlot (1.5L),Wine Spectator writes: "Rich and concentrated, with bold aromas of plum, currant and mocha leading to complex, layered blackberry, licorice and spice flavors that finish with a flourish of ripe, minerally tannins.

Of the 2015 Françoise Blanchard "Le Grand-Clere" Touraine,François is a former jazz musician who laid down his instruments to pick up the pruning sheers on his family's rundown estate. And literally, that is all he has done: This musician-turned-eccentric-winemaker has converted the estate over to Biodynamics and patched up a few holes here and there, but his focus lies solely on crafting wines and nurturing the fruit trees. The labels are fun, even some of the bottles formats are unusual, and quantities are limited.

Of the 2011 Lang & Reed "Two-Fourteen" Napa Valley Cabernet Franc (1.5L),Wine Enthusiast writes: "Named for the Entav clone, this is an earthy, herbal and dense 100% Cabernet Franc, hard to find in the Napa Valley and a special calling of this producer.
