Crocker & Starr Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2017

$49.99

95 Points                                                                   For years, Pam Starr (Crocker & Starr, Adastra) and Drew Neiman (previously assistant winemaker at Kongsgaard and Arietta) have been crafting exceptional wines under their own labels. Now they have joined together for the new release previously known as Bridesmaid.  95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds and another insane value, the Cabernet Franc A.V.A Red Blend checks in as 60% Cabernet Franc, 34% Merlot, and 6% Malbec that spent 22 months in 50% new barrels. Black cherries, savory earth, currants, and forest floor notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant red blend that should be snatched up by readers. It’s going to keep for over a decade." Robert Parker: "This is a brilliant project putting together blends that are declassified from other wineries…These are impressively put together wines.”

Love a good Cab Franc...this is an outstanding Cab Franc! Leather and spicy notes on nose. Full, dry, nice tannins. Loaded with black and blue fruits plus a nice graphite note.
