Celebrate National Cabernet Day With Everything You Need to Know About Cabernet
Wine Spectator: "This has loads of new wood, but the ripe, intense fruit easily handles it. Big and rich, showing a decadent, wild black forest fruit character on the palate. Opulent and beautiful. Cabernet Franc. Best after 2011" 91 Pts.
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Dedicato a Walter (Cabernet Franc) is a wine that continues to impress. Varietal aromas emerge from the glass followed by a warm, generous expression of dark fruit as this beautiful, undeniably sexy wine flows from the glass. It offers lovely weight on the palate, with a variety of roasted coffee bean, spice and sweet herb overtones that emerge with air. From start to finish, the wine reveals superb balance and harmony. It is an outstanding effort in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020." 92 Pts.
Wine Enthusiast: "This 100% Cabernet Franc is dedicated to the late brother of Marilisa Allegrini (co-owner of the 110-acre estate). This is a top-notch wine, with succulence, intensity and outstanding wood integration. The spice, chocolate, campfire and leather notes blend seamlessly. In the mouth, the wine is vibrant and long-lasting, with chocolate notes on the finish." 95 Pts.
