Page Mill Cabernet Franc Livermore Valley Ghielmetti Vineyard 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Floral and full of chaparral herb aromas on the nose along with some modest wood and plenty of sweet/tart red fruits. With an attractive blend of sweetness and savoriness without too much heaviness and weight on the palate this is rather light and fresh with mineral inflected tannins early on the palate. Tart red fruit, showing a bit of rhubarb, sour cherry, and subtly dried leafy flavors fill the midpalate, which shows finesse and real freshness and energy through the finish, which could be longer but it's full of earth, cranberry and raspberry fruit. Very enjoyable. 91pts

Fruit forward on the nose, with cherry and raspberry most pronounced. Delightful, well balanced Cab Franc - balance between acid and tannins is excellent. Slightly hot in the mouth (14.2% alcohol). Fruit sourced from Ghielmetti Vineyards, in eastern Livermore valley. Total production of 22 cases. Barrel aged 26 months. I'm glad Page Mill has begun to release its Cab Franc as single vintage, single varietal and not just as part of a blend.
