Lexington Wine Co. Cabernet Franc Gist Ranch Estate 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fairly oaky on the nose and full of black spicy aromas, sweet toast, a bit of caramel, and a hint of rye bread. This is nicely and noticeably high acid on entry with a young feel and an early rush of fresh if dark fruit. Theres a nice seamless texture with all the ripeness and power of california Cabernet but not much fat. This is rather intense and brawny, if sinewy, with rather dark and earthy fruit on the spicy finish that shows a whisper of heat. Spicy finish. 91pts

Comprised of 58% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc this wine has us truly excited about the future of Bordeaux varietals in the cool but sunny reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains. We sourced the majority of the grapes from Jon
