Winemaker's Notes

Filled with floral, herbal, black raspberry, coffee and brown sugar aromas. This wine is the direct production of grapes from Sugarloaf Mountain and Coombsville - both vineyards based on slopes - in the former's case mainly south facing.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Franc Against the Wind (75% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers a deep ruby/purple color, wonderful sweet black and blue fruit, camphor, asphalt and hints of flowers and toasty oak in the background, medium to full-bodied, intensely concentrated flavors, and 10-15 years of drinkability."
93 Points

"There’s nuanced green pepper and herbs on the nose of this classic Cabernet Franc, balanced in dense but firm black fruit, tobacco and dusty tannins. Rich and velvety it has plenty of grip for the long haul and is a fine choice for rosemary-adorned lamb. "
93 Points

"Good red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, violet and dark chocolate, plus a whiff of tobacco leaf. Sweet, dense and pliant, with lovely depth and a light touch to the dark fruit and floral flavors. Shows more inner-mouth energy and perfume than the merlot bottling, as well as a captivating sugar/acid balance. Possesses a solid tannin/acid spine for aging. An excellent varietal cabernet franc bottling: owner Jonathan Maltus is also the man behind a number of top Saint-Emilion wines (Le Dome, Les Asteries et al) and thus has a track record of working with this variety. 91(+?) points"

Learn About World's End

Described by Robert Parker as a 'visionary, self-styled revolutionary' and the 'English winemaking guru,' Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the 'garage revolution' in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990's. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
