Blackwood Lane Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Franc 2008

Member Review by zufrieden:

Though stamped with the unique signature of Carlos Lee, this wine has all the usual trademarks of the variety with that softer, more herbal nose; on the palate the wine has good complexity and elegance with light red fruit and excellent pH balance - somewhat between a Cali "over-the-top" interpretation (say Sonoma) and a fine Cab Franc dominated Bordeaux. Not quite a in the league of Cheval Blanc, but getting there at much less cost. 91 points.
