The brilliant 2001 Cuvee Lola (sadly, there are only 214 cases of this 75% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petite Sirah blend) is what Bordeauxandrsquo;s famed Cheval Blanc might taste like if it were a dry vintage port. This is a totally dry wine, but the glycerin levels are off the charts (give credit to the 16.1% natural alcohol). Inky/purple, with a gorgeous floral, blueberry, graphite, and smoky scented perfume, this spectacular, unctuously textured 2001 is an extraordinary expression of Cabernet Franc. I didnandrsquo;t ask Les Behrens or Bob Hitchcock where they got the Cabernet Franc, but my guess would be somewhere near heaven. This wine should drink well for 10andndash;15 years, but only a fool would allow it to sit unconsumed that long. Amazing! Drink 2003andndash;2018.

A Bordeaux blend based on 75% Cabernet Franc. Good bright ruby. Supper ripe aromas of black fruits, chocolates, flowers, mint and pepper, with a distinct raisiny note. Very sweet and ripe, with distinctly porty tones of medicinal black cherry, dark berries and dark chocolate. The alcohol here is in the 16% range. A bit extreme to my taste and the tannins seem a bit dominant, but some tasters will love this style. This was much fresher when I tasted it in barrel last year. Drink this soon.
