92 points "Color: deep; Nose: fragrant; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: well balanced; Medium to full bodied, rich fruit and perfect tannins combined with subtlety and depth. Truly excellent winemaking, bringing out more than I would have thought possible from this varietal."
rated: July 17, 2008 , Winemaker's notes
"This second bottling is inviting in appearance with its dark ruby red color, the 2004 “Jones Vineyard” Cabernet Franc brings scents of plum-violets, raspberry and cherry with hints of light smoke and spice to the nose. Upon tasting, flavors of blueberry and vanilla on the palate give way to a thick and lasting finish of currant, sweetwood and a hint of coconut."
