Critical Acclaim

JS96 JamesSuckling.com Tuesday, December 10, 2019

"This is an exceptional red with mostly cabernet franc, which gives it impressive pedigree and structure. Dry and muscular, full-bodied and layered. Classic cab franc. 88% cabernet franc, 7% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot. Try after 2021." (96 pts.)

VN90+ Vinous Dec 2018

"The 2017 Cabernet Franc Blueline opens with striking aromatics. Even with the freakish conditions of the year, the 2017 preserves terrific varietal definition and character. Nicely balanced and harmonious, the Franc is shaping up to be a beauty." (90–93 pts.)

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2019

"The 2017 Cabernet Franc Blueline Estate is made of 88% Cabernet Franc 7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it features expressive red currant jelly, Morello cherries and raspberry leaves notes with a baked plums and dried herbs undercurrent plus a waft of saw dust. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm, rugged texture and lively line, finishing with a compelling herbal lift." (92 pts.)

Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
