This is 100% varietal and remarkably impressive, true to its grape in earthy aromas of violet and sage. The mountainous appellation contributes girth and breadth, as well as densely layered texture and grip. Around the fullness are beautiful flavors of chocolate, graham cracker and blueberry. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Franc Mt. Veeder gives a pretty nose of kirsch, cranberry preserves and mulberries with touches of potpourri, baking spices and rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied, very fresh, finely textured and elegant in the mouth, the fruit is oh-so-beautifully perfumed, finishing long and spicy. (LPB)
Mt. Brave's 2015 Cabernet Franc is a huge, massively tannic wine that is going to need a number of years to shed some of its formidable mountain tannin. There is so much power and pure density here. The Franc is really best described as a mountain wine, while varietal character lies more in the background. The inky dark fruit and spice flavors are nicely delineated throughout. (AG)
Dark plums, mulberries and some dust. The palate has some nice tension, ripe tannins and a fruit-forward finish. Chewy.
