WINE & SPIRTS

91 Points

"Unmitigated, fragrant franc, this wine has a bright green herb blast of flavor, brisk as fresh thyme. Lang & Reed consistently builds this sort of freshness into its basic cabernet franc, a match for veal schnitzel or a roast chicken with herbs stuffed under the skin." 91pts EXCEPTIONAL Joshua Greene 12/05

 

THE WINE SPECTATOR

87 Points

"There’s a pleasant sweetness at the center of this cherry- and wild berry- laced Franc, which tends to tone down the herb, tobacco and sage notes. Complex and easy drinking, the tannins are supple and polished. Drink now." 87pts VERY GOOD James Laube 10/05

 

WINE ENTHUSIAST

88 Points

"Lang & Reed, one of the few Cab Franc specialists in Napa, has produced in this wine a delightful, even complex sipper. It’s much lighter in body than a Cab Sauvignon, with a richly herbal edge to the cherry flavors. Notable for its dryness, balance and harmony." 88pts VERY GOOD~RECOMMENDED Steve Heimoff 12/05

 

RESTAURANT WINE

FOUR Stars

"Very distinct in character (fruity, spicy, lightly herbal), full bodied, and moderately intense in flavor, with good balance and medium length. Virtually ready to drink." Four Stars EXCELLENT Ronn Wiegand mw ms 12/05
