Scores & Reviews

94-96+ Points

"The 2019 Cabernet Franc Block 10 is another 100% varietal from winemaker Chris Peterson that does everything right. Offering slightly lifted notes of blue fruits, violets, and flowers, it has a more modern, opulent vibe than most wines from Chris yet still has classic Cabernet Franc complexity as well as ripe, polished tannins and terrific balance."
