Bastille Day marks a Lang & Reed Franc revolution with the release of Lang & Reed 2007 “Two-Fourteen”. Our inspiration spans the ocean to the Loire Valley and its Cabernet Franc clone Entav 214. “Old world” meets “new world” in the only known California bottling to date.

Lang & Reed Wine Company is pleased to announce the release of our newest wine, L & R 2007 Cabernet Franc “214” Napa Valley is 100% Cabernet Franc clone, Entav 214. Entav 214 originated in France’s Loire Valley and was brought to the new world during the mid 1990’s. In 2007, Lang & Reed came across the well-tended Sugarloaf Vineyard where vineyard blocks are planted to this unique clone. Here on the southeastern ridges of Napa, the rocky hillside of Sugarloaf bathes in the Napa Valley sun while being tempered by the cooling breezes of the northern reaches of San Francisco Bay.

The stellar conditions of the 2007 harvest produced a wine laden with Cabernet Franc aromatics and succulent flavors that display refinement and express the purity of Entav 214. Bottled in late summer of 2009, 165 cases are released on Bastille Day – July 14, 2010. Available on a limited national basis, the suggested retail price is $40.00 per 750ml. Inquiries welcome.
