The first in a series of exceptional red wine values we’ve sourced from a family-owned, boutique North Coast winery that specializes in small-lot, top-quality wines made from certified organic vineyards in Lake County and the Sierra Foothills (and boasts a massive laundry list of 90+ scores and double gold medals from the past decade to boot).
Grown at 3,000 feet altitude in smartly-planted, conscientiously-farmed vineyards (you simply cannot produce organic fruit with anything less). Farmed to perfection and produced to be reflective of place and varietal, this is a powerful statement of quality. Already a terrific value under the original label, and an incredible deal under ours.
Cab Franc Lite
We were expecting this to be much bigger than it was, but were pleasantly surprised by its subtlety. The oak comes through in a complimentary way and it has great depth. Looking forward to placing a bigger order next year (hint to CH, bring it back).
This was the first time I'd ordered Cab Franc. Found it a quite interesting wine. Medium bodied, spicy flavors. I'd order it again.
Not what I expected
Seems a fairly balanced red very subtle on the pallete but lacks much depth. Not really my cup of tea I guess. Would it be weird to say it lacks flavor? I can’t really pull any notes from this. Perhaps I need to let the other bottle sit awhile.
Went too fast!
Only got 4 when first released, and just came back for more... TOO LATE! I'll keep an eye out for other offerings from this producer, because 650 was absolutely outstanding. We love our Cab Franc here in Virginia, and this was spot-on.
My sister is in the wine club and we tried this over the weekend, I was hoping to order a few bottles but it is sold out. We really enjoyed this wine and what a great price.

Great Cab Franc. Wish I had bought more before sold out
1st wine I tasted from my 1st purchase @CH. Medium-full bodied wine, balanced, with cherry, berry flavors. Exceptional value . Sorry it sold out so quickly (3 hours). I was fortunate to be on my email when released. I'll look forward to next years vintage of Sierra Foothills Cab Franc.
We enjoyed this wine. Great price. Should have bought more before it sold out!
I am enjoying the case of wine. Shared with my family and everyone seemed to enjoy
Agree with Tom
I was really looking forward to this wine because I normally love Cab Franc. I have to agree with Tom (previous reviewer), that I wasn’t super impressed. Good value, but was hoping for a little better tasting wine. I tasted it immediately after opening, after 1 hour decant, 2 hours, and 24 hours. It did improve, but maybe it needs a little more time in the bottle to settle down a little bit.
This is a nice approachable cab franc. Good fruit. Good minerals and definitely worth the price. Glad I grabbed a couple cases
