"The 2016 Cabernet Franc is a very pretty, gracious wine. Rose petal, cedar and sweet red berry fruit all lift from the glass. Medium in body and incredibly refined, the 2016 is another positively stellar wine in this range from Robert Keenan." -AG, Dec/2018

"Made of 100% Cabernet Franc from the Spring Mountain District, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Franc offers up roses, cedar and forest floor with a core of raspberries, cherries, earth and mulberries plus nuances of pencil shavings and cinnamon. The palate is medium-bodied, soft and juicy with grainy tannins, finishing long and perfumed." -LPB, 12/13/18
