At first inky and bitter as cherry skin, this opens with air to reveal an intriguing floral scent. The texture smoothes out and draws to a fuller cherry fruit. Decant this if you open it soon, or cellar it for a few years to bring the fruit forward.

The ebullient John Skupny and his wife Tracy focus only one varietal at Lang andamp; Reed: Loire Valley native Cabernet Franc. The couple began making the wine in 1993, convinced that the blending and proper vinification of select Napa Valley Cabernet Franc plantings would result in a serious California version of one of the worldandrsquo;s great food wines.

A hearty Franc, inside-out, with smoky, leathery, stalky and beefy berry aromas that morph into rich, earthy, dusty currant and new shoe leather flavors, right down to the chewy tannins in the finish. Best from 2003 through 2010.

Ripe, round and polished, with pretty plum and black cherry fruit that shows a beefy side. Turns elegant and sophisticated on the finish, where the flavors are neatly tapered and the tannins are fine and integrated. Drink now through 2004.
