The 2011 Arietta Red Wine H Block Hudson Vineyards, Arietta's "eldest child" and best known red wine, returns to the fold after a year-long sabbatical. Beginning with the 2011 vintage, Read More...
Merlot from the adjacent Hudson I Block joins the Cabernet Franc from the celebrated H Block on the Hudson Ranch on the Napa side of Carneros, and provides an especially juicy core to the wine. This year's blend is 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc.

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "Proprietor Fritz Hatton and winemaker Andy Erickson have done a fabulous job with these wines, the 2011 reds in particular. Sweet red berries, tobacco, mint, licorice and a host of savory notes are woven throughout the 2011 H Block Hudson Vineyards, a Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend. The 2011 is soft and inviting, with a focus on nuance rather than size. My impression is that the 2011 is built for near-term drinking, but like all of Arietta's reds in this challenging vintage, the H Block stands out for its sense of balance."

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.

heart of Touraine. The vineyards enjoy full southern exposure helping to ripen the Cabernet Franc grapes. This is the land of Cabernet Franc, better known locally as “Breton.” Though it’s known often as a blending grape in Bordeaux, it has the ability to shine nicely on it’s own in the Loire.

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 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Franc exudes aromas of red cherry, raspberry and floral perfume with the most delicate hints of dried herbs.

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.

on limestone. Vinified in neutral oak barrels and a 60 hl oak tank, this wine is available in screw caps or corks.
Bottled under screwcap. On the nose, this pale gold wine has an autumnal apple character, sweet and relaxed, and yet also quite vibrant and pure in style. At the edge there is a lifted bright, green-apple-skin note. But on the palate it is certainly more perfumed and fleshy than green, showing a sweet flavour reminiscent of pink-fleshed apples. This comes with a lovely substance. quite solid and yet bright, giving the wine a rather bold feel at times. Also a touch grippy, although very approachable, with its solid apple-flesh character. Delicious freshness and brightness here.

Ask any winery in need of a winemake, and Aaron Pott would surely be at the top of everybody's list. And why not?...Not only does he have his degree in Enology, which he earned from U.C. Davis, Read More...
but he has helped to make wine at Newton, Troplong Mondot, and La Tour Figeac. Currently, he is the consulting winemaker at a select few illustrious Napa Valley wineries, including Blackbird, Fisher Vineyards, Krupp Brothers Estate/Stagecoach Vineyard, Quintessa, Quixote and Seven Stones.

This bottling is comprised of Cabernet Franc from the Young Inglewood Vineyard. Located in St. Helena, at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains, the soil is an alluvial benchland with gravelly loam. Think along the lines of Cheval Blanc, and you know why Aaron Pott likes this for Cabernet Franc.
