Elusa

Kenefick Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2015

Big and bold nose shows cedar and espresso and sweet notes of blackberry, violets and cassis. Full bodied and full of muscles. Dark chocolate with espresso aspirations, black cherry and blackberry reductions, black currant and blacker tobacco. Toffee and cedar explode and melt into a lingering, unctuous chocolate ganache.

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc - Merlot Blend 2011

Strong earthy nose of oak bark and loam. Black cherry, blackberry and currant reduction, cinnamon sticks and clove inform the nose. Plums of red and black just underripe, tart cherry, dried raspberry, tarragon, rosemary, dried violets and graphite shimmers. Young and juicy, much more to give! .

Delicious #cabfranc #cabernetfranc from #toscana hand harvested. Delicate, less Mediterranean than I expected and actually more like a Loire style. — 2 years ago

Fantastic nose, even though the #cabfranc isn’t the principal grape #bordeauxblend it comes through pure and clear. On the palate it seemed too sweet and overripe. #mexicanwine #mexico — 4 months ago

La Jota Vineyard Co.

Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc 2019

Lovely, smoky, mushroom-funk with ethereal violet perfume emanating from lemon madeleines. Perfect expression of cassis and blackberries and black cherry, touches of sweet tobacco reveal a jungle of verdant herbs. Amazing cab franc with the full spectrum of textures.
