The 2016 Cabernet Franc Estate is even better and is a sensational expression of Cabernet Franc! Coming all from the Crocker Vineyard outside of St. Helena and aged 21 months in 80% new French oak, it offers classic Franc blue fruits, purple iris, dried herbs, and hints of chocolate on the nose. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant wine that has silky tannins, the purity of fruit that makes 2016 such a compelling vintage, perfect balance, and a great finish. Count me impressed. Readers should snatch up this beauty, which should keep for 15-20 years.

The 2016 Cabernet Franc is made of 100% Cabernet Franc from 28-year-old vines, aged 21 months in 80% new French oak. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is a little closed to start, opening out to lovely Bing cherries, red and black plums and black raspberries scents with touches of pencil lead, mossy bark and rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied, fine, fresh and elegant, it has loads of mineral and floral notions and a long, earthy finish. 652 cases produced.- LPB
