From an estate in Oakville where the pedigree of the vintner and winemaking team honestly couldn't get any higher, I have about 200 cases of sublime shiners. I can't divulge any more details about the sourcing, but I can say that this comes direct from the cellar with perfect provenance, is an archetypal version of its varietal, has over two years bottle aging, and sells for $90 under the original label.
No-expense-spared vineyard management and winemaking, including concrete egg fermentations and an abundance of high quality French oak. This is a beautifully rendered, knockout expression of what Napa Valley has to offer.
What a wonderful wine.
I'm becoming a big fan of cab franc. This one from Oakville is a beauty. Drinking great now with a good decant, but with enough stuffing to cellar for a number of years. We need more cab franc!
May be the best CH yet
I just wish I would have gotten more than just 3 bottles at release. This Oakville Cab Franc may be the best wine CH has released. Just awesome...
Robust bouquet and very full bodied. Had with Lamp Chops.
Delicious. I love CH Whines Cabaret Franc wines. Wish they did not sell out so fast.
Excellent Cab Franc. Full of fruit with enough oak to make it very elegant. I regret buying only 2.
Wonderful nose. Full bodied and complex with a wonderful finish. As they say ... should've bought more!
so darn good!
So I was saving my one and only bottle of this to share with my best friend who loves cab franc and gets it from a winery in New York-BUT-I see there is a new release -lot 578- and Cameron says it's the best of all 3 Francs they have offered. Well,I had to crack open 572 today to try it- this is fantastic so I can only imagine what 578 will be like! Don't hesitate when he says to order NOW! I am getting several!!!!
It's difficult finding good Cab franc here on the east coast. Whenever CH offers some I place an order. This one will not disappoint. Full fruit and just enough oak to compliment. Too bad it sold out so quickly. Now if I could just find some Tannat.
Not surprised that this Cabernet Franc has sold out. It is delicious and I am sorry I did not order more. Wonderfully smooth with a great finish. Please keep finding more treats like this !
One of the best Cab Franc's I have ever had.
I got a lot of exclamations from guests drinking this big bodied Franc. It's quite bold, so I would let it catch a good long breath and pair with something slightly exotic, like buffalo, venison, or boar.
