Review:

The Rosa Mystica Block Vineyard is a Cab lover's Cab Franc. Black color, ripe fruit, blackberry cedar nose, ripe, rich textured finish. This is a multi-dimensional wine, nothing like usual Cab Franc- too good to be a mixing wine, this Cab Franc stands on its own. David says the vineyard makes wonderful fruit but is exposed to extreme weather stress, resulting in tiny harvest of small, intensely flavored grapes.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

This wine is all about elegance and sophistication. The aromas are complex--bright red berry, perfume, and cedar. Initially, the wine is supple and delicate, hiding a richness and depth that fleshes out with a minute or two of air. It's surprisingly drinkable now for a young wine, and will win over even the most ardent Cab Franc "non-believer."

2008 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Silky and lively, this is appealing for its raspberry, red plum, floral and clove flavors, neatly wrapped with refined tannins, lingering well. Shows style and grace. Drink now through 2015. 960 cases made. - H.S.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Aromas of bright red berries, wet stone, cardamom. Elegant flavors of red berry liquer and currant on the palate conceals the spicy tannins and grilled herbs on the finish.

2007 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Aromatic with floral and savory herb notes, then expands in the mouth with supple blackberry and cherry fruit, finishing expressively with rich texture. Drink now through 2015. - H.S.
