Sara L. Schneider, Robb Report

"Under acclaimed winemaker Steve Matthiasson, Ashes & Diamonds has been making some notable Cabernet Francs, and you can taste the first three vintages side by side with this terrific vertical. The bright 2015 launches with focused fruit—black raspberry—layered with earth and florals at once, pepper and graphite. The 2016 weighs in with a little more tannin structure; exotic spice and sour cherry are underlined by a vein of minerality, ending with compelling textures and length. And the spice in the vibrant 2017 runs warm and earthy under juicy black cherry punctuated by cedar and resiny herbs, wrapped in a generous structure."
