Ratings & Reviews

94-96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Currently a 100% varietal barrel sample (it normally sees small amounts of other varieties), the 2018 Blueline Cabernet Franc just screams Cabernet Franc on the nose with its liquid flower, sappy herbs, a kiss of espresso, and beautiful black and blue fruit. Full-bodied, balanced, and with the vintage's purity of fruit, it's a terrific wine in the making." - Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2020)

93-96 Points - Vinous:
"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is positively radiant. Supple and unctuous on the palate with tremendous textural richness, the 2018 possesses superb mid-palate richness and tons of sheer personality. Blackberry jam, black cherry, licorice, lavender and cloves all meld together in a forward, voluptuous Cabernet that will drink well with minimal cellaring. The 100% new oak is very well integrated. The 2018 finishes with striking textural intensity and energy. " - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2020)

92-94+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A barrel sample of 100% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Cabernet Franc Blueline Estate leaps from the glass with exuberant Morello cherries, black raspberries and red currant jelly notes with touches of rose hip tea, pencil shavings and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautiful elegance and expression with lovely red fruit layers and a firm, finely grained texture, finishing long and lively." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Oct 2019)
