You know it’s a slamming wine when the winemaker himself has to ask three times over to get his own single-case allocation…. Cabernet Franc at Caldwell is something singular and special. It’s delicious in every sense of the word. Ripe fruit, earth and spice meld seamlessly with faint hints of both sophistication and funk of the finest sort. With velvety red fruits, salted caramel, cedar and tobacco, it’s a rare treat and at its very best in a ripe vintage like 2013.
