Review:

Silky and refined, the 2008 Cabernet Franc has a heady scent of crushed violets and cocoa. Rich plum, cassis, and blackberry fruits are brushed with powdered Mexican mole spices and clove. Mouth filling and supple, it offers far more than you'd expect for the price.

100% Cabernet France made entirely from the winery's McClellan Estate Vineyard, located in "the rocks" area of Walla Walla's Oregon side. The vineyard was planted in 2003 and sits next to two of Walla Walla's noteworthy vineyards, Seven Hills and Windrow. 238 cases were made.

A Cab Franc this good from such young vines peaks my interest. Put a note in your calendar to check out these wines in a few years. And start collecting now, while the wines are a bargain. - Jean

Smooth dark chocolate with a floral bouquet make this wine a pleasure to savor. On the palate, this Cab Franc has a chalky mouth feel, with a slight tannic grip. - the winery
