A Wine Club 'Circle of Friends' exclusive!

Part of the 2017 Cab Ride Series (6 different wines total) highlighting the difference vineyard location (terroir) makes in wine. All wines in this series were vinified in the exact same way, leaving the difference that terroir makes in a wine to shine through. 
We work hard to create wines that delight the taste buds AND educate at the same time (hence the different wine series we provide).  We want you to be able to grow in your wine experience within our club.  We want you to enjoy being a wine insider with special knowledge!

Collect them all and taste for yourself- Van Bers, Briar Creek, Hunter Farms, Smith, Neumann, and Highland!

Naturally you have noticed that the 'Circle of Friends' front label for this series all look the same. These are all different wines. It is the back label that defines what wine is inside the bottle. If you look at the back label of these Circle of Friends labelled wines, you will read that they are all from different vineyards. So, please be sure to refer to the back label to know what wine you are enjoying.


Depth, dexterity, power and reach all come together with this 2017 Smith Vineyard Cabernet Franc. Initially, there is a flurry of fresh, dark berry elements, and just when it seems that everything has been laid bare, another subtle characteristic quietly comes forth. Each individual essence has its own strong voice, yet all are balanced in a
soulful harmony. The fully resolved tannic frame is sturdy enough to hold the swelling song while the bright acidic seam keeps every note focused and crisp. With a lingering
finish, this wine continues to make promises that it keeps with each subsequent sip. It is a beautifully haunting wine that inspires both great expectation and joy.
