"The 2018 Cabernet Franc Tinaquaic Vineyard Old Vines Heritage Club is punchy and spicy. Red cherry jam, tobacco, leather and dried herbs confer a great deal of savory intensity. Varietal and site character meld together in a super-distinctive Franc that has so much to offer. I loved it." - Vinous, 94 Points

"Better, the 2018 Cabernet Franc Tinaquaic Vineyard Heritage Club is all varietal and spent 22 months in 33% new French oak. Medium-bodied, balanced, and elegant on the palate, it has terrific cassis and cherry fruits as well as sappy flower, violets, and herbal notes. The purity of fruit is spot on, and it has the balance and class to evolve for 10-12 years with no issues." - JebDunnuck.com, 94 Points 

"This cool-climate franc has gamey, dark berry scents, accented by a whiff of violet pastilles. Despite being plush and extracted, it captures some of cabernet franc’s herbal charm, the feel of Central Coast chaparral in its grippy savor. —P.J.C. (150 cases)" - Wine & Spirits, 91 Points
