A robust Cabernet Franc with enticing notes of blackberries, black plum and mocha. Balanced and very tasty. Terrific wine for a potluck gathering.

Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 89/100
sit. sip. savour. rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

this ruby red Cabernet Franc offers aromas of mint, fresh berry & vanilla. upon tasting, elements of tart yet cooked fruit, smoke & salt emerge. medium plus body.
While playing a key role in our signature wine Stratus Red, this marks the fourth individual bottling of Cabernet Franc at Stratus. As in previous vintages, this wine shows distinctive spiciness and black fruit character with the herbaceous edge so classically associated with Cabernet Franc. The 2007 vintage provided heightened ripeness that has contributed to its concentration and complexity.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
