First made in the 2010, yet the first time it’s been 100% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Rapszodia has a true 'Wow' nose of ripe currant and cassis fruit intermixed with loads of spring flowers, damp earth, and a Graves-like damp earth/gravely minerality. With full-bodied richness, a gorgeous, layered texture, ultra-fine tannin, and a great finish, it’s going to sing for 20-25+ years. 98+ (12/2017)

Produced from 100% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Rapszodia has a very deep garnet-purple color and nose of kirsch, cassis, blueberry tart and dark chocolate with hints of violets, pencil shavings, beef drippings and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, incredibly elegant and yet with super-intense red and black fruits, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and minerally. (LPB) 98+ (12/2017)

This is a 100-percent cabernet franc with amazing violets, blueberries and crushed stones. Lavender, too. Full body with super fine tannins. Purity and precision. Just a tiny hint of austerity at the end, which gives it great interest. Drink in 2020 but already gorgeous to drink. (5/2018)

The 2015 Rapszodia is dark, powerful and unctuous. In this vintage, the Rapszodia is 100% Cabernet Franc. Intensely aromatic and expressive, the 2015 speaks to finesse and nuance above all else. Still a bit shy from its bottling a few months ago, the 2015 is likely to require at least a few years to be at its best. Even so, it is quite expressive today. (AG) (3/2018)
