2015 Lang & Reed North Coast Cabernet Franc

SKU #1444978 91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fresh violets, herbs, elderberries, licorice and spices. The palate is grainy and somewhat edgy with firm tannins, fine acidity and a pretty finish. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This earthy, savory wine from one of the few Cab Franc specialists in California shows feral aromas and complex, herbaceous, meaty flavors that challenge the notion of the varietal. It is medium bodied, firmly tannic and offers an interesting path worth taking. (JG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark There is a lot going on in the slightly earthy, vaguely vegetal, loosely fruity aromas of this wine, and, while the flavors that follow are ripe and fairly full, they too are laced with all sorts of herbs and savory bits, and complexity, rather than fruit, is this one's principal calling card. It is moderately tannic and tough enough on the back end to ask for additional age, but, while it is structured to go for another five to seven years, its slight lack of fruity confidence has us thinking that two or three might be the better bet. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Moderate in scale, featuring fresh, racy damson plum and bitter cherry notes, liberally laced with sanguine and savory threads. Stays persistent through the finish. (JM, Web Only-2020) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Like a domestic Chinon, the Lang & Reed Cabernet Franc showcases the varietal at its best. Sourced from vineyards in Lake County, with small amounts of fruit from vineyards in the Napa Valley and Sonoma County, this is always a violet-hued wine with a dark nose full of black cherry fruit underscored by lavender, sage, and fennel aromas.
