Cabernet Franc is hot and Snowden makes one of the best Cab Francs in Napa Valley. Limited

96 Points Decanter: "Brothers Scott and Randy Snowden assumed responsibility for the family property after their father Wayne’s death in 1977. Today, Scott’s daughter
Diana Snowden Seysses makes the wines and is also oenologist at Burgundy’s Domaine Dujac (she is married to Jeremy Seysses). The Cabernet Franc is impeccable: an elegant swirl of red plums, raspberry briars, woodland, camphor and spices. Both subtle and complex, it’s a vivid wine that Snowden Seysses says ‘waits quietly for you to notice it."

93 Points Antonio Galloni: "The 2018 Cabernet Franc is an absolutely gorgeous wine in this range. This is a beautifully layered, vertical wine with tons of nuance and complexity. Although the 2018 is naturally very young, it has tons of potential. Hints of rose petal, mint and bright red cherry add brightness as the wine opens up in the glass. This is a very intriguing Franc. "

Winery Notes: "A perennial blending component of our Reserve wines of the past, this 2018 is our first release of a 100% Cabernet Franc. We could not be more delighted with this weightless, sublime beauty! It has intoxicating aromas of violets and juniper berries. On the palate it is seamless, ethereal, and long. It is like fine, transparent silk blowing gently in the wind. Flavors of cranberry and cedar ripple and weave, lingering for minutes."
