of Cabernet Franc, such as Château Cheval Blanc. The couple sought out their Coombsville vineyard property with an eye to producing top-quality Cabernet Franc-based wines from Napa Valley. They bought the Arrow & Branch Vineyard in November 2007, as this vineyard was the source of Tony Soter's renowned and highly rated Little Creek Cabernet Franc. The Contursi's have maintained the organic farming and, through their work with the detail-oriented Viticulturalist Mike Wolf, are continually improving this wonderful vineyard site.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 26% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec, the gorgeous wine was aged for 20 months, entire in French oak barrels. It boasts a vinous perfume of spice (think anise), tobacco, candied orange peel and savory herbs. Warm and peppery on the entry, its ripe fruit include fresh blackberries and sweet cherry reduction. It’s a supple, seamless, layered wine of violet and berry compote made complex by notes of warm baked bread. The wood is quietly integrated leaving traces of milk chocolate and creating a gentle support for a beautiful wine. Interesting, with deft balance, this wine is structured and delightfully fresh but also suavely textured, long and full; finishing with a pleasing sweetness. This harmonious beauty will improve in the bottle over the next 10-15 years.

old vines create a racy franc, a deep and saturated wine that feels open rather than weighty and concentrated, focusing attention on the floral notes of cherries and the pith around the pit—stony in the way a cherry pit is stony—its bold intensity intriguingly shaded, then opening up with light. The beautiful bright color of the wine offers further assurance that these vines did well in 2011."

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2011 CiFRA is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon (aged in cement) that is slightly less complicated than Altrovino. Read More...
Black fruit and dried herbs are woven within the wine’s plush, sweet finish. Candied cherry appears as a final endnote. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022."

The winemaking for Duemani’s delightful Cabernet Franc, “Cifra” is fresh, aromatic and ripe with Tuscan sun to give weight. Cement vats without the use of artificial additives, and no oak! This is bottled sunshine- bright, red cherry flavors with gorgeous silky tannins. The finished wine reflects the vision of pure terroir Luca and Elena.

Azienda Agricola Duemani is the ownership property of superstar winemaker Luca d’Attoma (formerly of Tua Rita, and currently at Le Macchiole, pictured above). This winery is the perfect example of what happens when a world-class enologist finally has the chance to buy his own property. Starting completely from scratch, Luca leveled these rolling hillsides in Riparbella, just next to Bolgheri, and planted his fields mainly with his first love: Cabernet Franc. The passion Luca puts into the wines is obvious, as the project has been entirely organic/ biodynamic from the first day. With no neighboring properties, his vineyards are totally isolated from conventional farming. His vineyard density is unusually high, resulting in fruit of exceptional quality The estate is certified biodynamic by Demeter (http://www.demeter.net). As proponents of the principles of biodynamic farming, the cultivation and care of the vineyard’s soil is of the utmost importance to Luca and Elena. They employ various practices throughout the year to stimulate soil vitality and health which in turn provides beneficial nutrients and oxygen to the vines

This 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Franc exudes aromas of red cherry, raspberry and floral perfume with the most delicate hints of dried herbs. On the palate the wine at first appears taut with red cherry and then transforms into a lush, juicy mix of red and black fruits. A sense of refinement is evident as the finish shows soft gentle tannins that extend the fruit experience and displays great vineyard personality in its length.

Lang & Reed's 2011 is an assemblage of three vineyards, stretching from the western shores of Clear Lake to the northern reaches of Lake County. The High Chaparral Vineyard, located Read More...
high up in the real red hills of Lake County just north of Kelseyville was planted back in the 70’s. It is the only Cabernet Franc vineyard we know of that is planted on its own roots—a true Franc de Pied providing deep structure and lovely fruit tannins. Also above the 2,000ft elevation in the High Valley appellation of Lake County are the Cross Spring Vineyards and La Sierra. The grapes from here provide Lang & Reed with an exciting facet in their goal to express ‘typicity’ in their North Coast bottling.

The 2011 North Coast Cabernet Franc has a bright, clear violet blue color. The aromas display firm red berry, gentle lavender and licorice overtones. The palate provides a supple counter to the bright aromas yet shows a slightly huskier structure than most recent past vintages. Its vibrancy makes for early enjoyment but its structure and firm tannins will allow for some softening with cellar aging. Brilliant when shared and enjoyed among family and friends!

This cuvée has a richer hue, and a warmer, riper style than the Chinon Vieilles Vignes on the nose. Read More...
Quite a supple palate follows, with rather velvety tannins here, and a lightly chewy character to it as well. It has a softly poised finish. Overall, and attractive and approachable style.

aim for a 100% bio range. The usual fresh style on the nose, with crunchy fruit, and I find the same on the palate which is softly fruited with a crunchy edge to the texture. Lightly tannic with crisp acid core. A good and very classic example of the appellation. 80 year old vines at Beaumont en Veron on a limestone terroir.
