Mission Codename Like Silk
Today’s Hook & Ladder Vineyards and Winery 2011 Russian River Valley Cabernet Franc had everyone on our tasting panel raving. We have had the great fortune of featuring the two previous vintages of this wine, and we all agreed that this 2011 vintage is the best yet!
Today’s stunning wine is lively, juicy, and delicious, with not a flaw in sight. The finish is the absolute highlight: silky and almost impossibly soft.
Cabernet Franc is one of our favorite varietals here at The Wine Spies, and today’s offering from Hook & Ladder is a wonderful example of the best aspects of the varietal. If you haven’t tried one lately, or aren’t familiar with Cab Franc, today’s elegant, well-balanced, and very approachable wine is the perfect way to get started!
