TEXSOM Silver Medal Winner
“There are just 56 cases of the stellar 2020 Cabernet Franc, a blend of 75% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, 3% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, the emphasis is on blueberries and black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, it's velvety in texture, with lingering notes of purple raspberries on the finish. Hertelendy says it's his favorite of his 2020s, and it's easy to see why.” — Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 95 Points
“The 2020 Cabernet Franc is a fantastic release from Hertelendy. It begins to impress with fresh inviting aromatics of black cherries, dark currants followed by exotic spices, dusty gravel, florals, tobacco, fresh sage and traces dark chocolate that all come together beautifully. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous full-bodied texture that is structured around big firm tannins. It displays outstanding overall balance with a ripe core of fresh red/dark fruits, spices and florals that resonate through the wine. It goes on to display an incredible combination of concentration, depth and poise all the way through the incredibly long finish. While this is excellent today, it should continue to impress for many years to come. This is nothing short of an incredible success in this challenging vintage.” — International Wine Report, 95 Points
Vineyard Notes
“Cabernet Franc is deep garnet-purple in color. Notes of creme de cassis, plum preserves, and stewed cherries jump from the glass with hints of cinnamon stick, allspice, and dusty soil. The full-bodied palate is plush and bold, with bags of black fruit and loads of spicy sparks, finishing long.” — The Wine Independent, 93 Points
