Lang & Reed Cabernet Franc 214 Napa Valley 2015
Turn us over, we’re DONE. L&R!! An “insider”, locals-fave classic if we’ve EVER seen one. Amazing price! 92 POINTS! Load up, we say!! 50% OFF -- only bummer is how many cases we have...this is a serious, delicious, single-vineyard that MUST be tasted (and you'll want to put a few in the wine rack for special occasions)! WOW!
John and Tracey Skupny are the affable, fascinating, congenial and generous winemakers behind this much-beloved Napa producer of world-class Cabernet Franc, and those words could easily describe their luscious, classy, lithe and can’t-put-it-down wines (they make a superb Chenin Blanc, too). You’ve probably had it at your favorite local higher-end restaurant --- somms love it, as Cab Franc (especially this warm, spicy one) has plenty of food-pairing possibilities. Here at Last Bottle, we drink it with and without food, and have (for a decade) considered it the go-to on many a local wine list (Ciccio, we love you) Anyway, the wine! You are going to LOVE it and wish you bought a few more...
The Two-Fourteen is a single-clone, single-vineyard Cabernet Franc (from the heralded Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard, no less) and in the bright, warm 2015 vintage it sings with juicy, fresh, raspberry extract, crushed flowers, violet, cool cherries, scintillating “forest floor” notes, mineral, and a dash of complex spices (think spearmint, maybe, or lavender…). EXCEPTIONAL, terrific price...what can we say? We love you L&R! Wow!
