Description

Howell Mountain is also the home for Beringer’s single vineyard Cabernet Franc, long a favorite in the Rhine House tasting room by staff and customers of many years. The Cabernet Franc demonstrates the intensity and concentration of flavors resulting from Howell Mountain’s restrictive soils and unique microclimates.

    “Aromas of currants, dried leaves, mocha, charred wood and toffee. It’s full-bodied with firm, ultra-fine tannins and a sleek, creamy texture. Layered and seamless. Delicious. Rather delicate finish.” - James Suckling, January 2021

    Vinous

    “The 2018 Cabernet Franc Bancroft Ranch is laced with red cherry fruit, mint, rose petal and blood orange. Silky and medium in body, the Bancroft Ranch Cabernet is super-expressive today. Pliant fruit and impeccable balance will make it easy to drink pretty much upon release. This is an especially forward style of Franc, especially for Howell Mountain.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021
