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.
Another good wine for the price. Different varietal than my usuaCan use some time breathing.
It Grew on Me
I purchased this because of the reviews. When I first tried it I thought somewhat sour? but the finish was ever so appealing. I let it breath for an hour and it really opened up. I wish I had bought a case. Really enjoying the full flavor of this wine.
Excellent wine for the price
Wish I had purchased more. Oaky and spicey that unpairs well with barbaque.
Nice fruit, but there is an awful lot going on. Subtle oak, definitely get the olive undertones. Each sip reveals something different. Deserves to be contemplated.
Unique Cab Franc With High Notes and Low Costs
I have had Cab Franc before from CH Wine. I have found it quite interesting that this lot of Cab Franc was quite different than the other lots I have had. Lot 650 is medium bodied (which I prefer), spicy flavors but not too overbearing and pairs well with slightly sweeter cheese and/or food. . I'd order it again but they seem to be out of stock. So the next best option is to wait for a new lot to come out and buy another round. Make sure you open the bottle and let it sit in the glass for at least 15-20 minutes.
Agree with Tom and Jonathan G
This was my first-ever purchase of Cabernet Franc, so I had no particular expectations. Like Tom and Jonathan G (previous reviewers), I wasn’t especially impressed. A reasonable price doesn't make for a great value if I can't taste the wine.
Great Franc !
I’ve really come to enjoy this varietal. Don’t pass it up!
Wow! Unbelievable value.
This is a really nice wine; better than any I've had for the price. Wow! Unbelievable. I wish I'd gotten a couple of cases.
A frankly typical Franc
The 650 is exactly what the varietal should taste like. Bigger than Virginia bottlings; lovely terroir. Wish we'd bought more.
A Savory Value
My first Cab Franc from this region and I was pleased. Big fruit but very savory. Have 3 more I’m going to wait on...if I can. Super value.
