Wine Details

Leaps out of the glass with a beautiful nose of scorched earth, pine needle, and loamy black olive underpinned with ripe blackberry, cassis, and tasty oak that becomes more pronounced with air. Rich and lush to the palate, with a vibrant structure to to carry the ample fruit and oak components. Blackberry jam, mocha and spicy oak are in perfect balance in a long, lithe finish.

Cam Confidential

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.

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!

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.

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.
