Introducing the first 100% Cabernet Franc by winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown for the blockbuster 2013 vintage that screams Diamond Mountain fruit. The Cabernet Franc block was planted in the late 1990s in the Wallis vineyard and has risen to become a standalone star. A small lot of only 50 cases of Cab Franc was produced to showcase the vibrant Diamond Mountain fruit. 

“An excellent 2013 Cabernet Franc shows wonderful sweet, rich blueberry and black raspberry fruit, a nice judicious touch of oak, low acidity and lush forest floor notes. This is medium to full-bodied, 100% Cabernet Franc aged 20 months in French oak. It's showing beautifully already, and there's no reason to defer gratification. The color is a dense ruby/purple. Drink it over the next decade.” 90 Points Awarded by Robert Parker, December 2015

"A 100% varietal wine that opens invitingly in wafts of baked bread and follows on the palate with juicy black currant and dried herb, this shows complexity and elegance in equal measure. Firm tannin girds substantial characteristics of black licorice and tobacco, with a succulent finish. Drink now through 2023." 92 Points Awarded, Cellar Selection by Wine Enthusiast
