97 Point Rated Robert Parker (59 cases produced)
A blend of 75% Cabernet Franc, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Cabernet Franc Heavy Metal needs a little coaxing to draw out its amazing perfume of black raspberries, boysenberries, wild blueberries and kirsch with fragrant suggestions of rose oil, cedar chest, sandalwood, cloves and cinnamon stick and a waft of pencil lead. The medium to full-bodied palate explodes with intense red and black fruit flavors plus exciting tension and a rock-solid, fine-grained texture, finishing with epic floral and exotic spice fireworks. Once again, the label comes to life (with the free Heavy Metal AR app).
"A blend of 75% Cabernet Franc, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% each of Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Franc gives up a classic Franc nose of darker, black fruits, scorched earth, dark chocolate, and flowers. These carry to a full-bodied, elegant wine with plenty of mid-palate concentration, ripe, present tannins, a solid spine of acidity, and nicely integrated oak. It's another gorgeous wine from this team that's going to evolve for 15+ years." Jeb Dunnuck 95+ Points
