Lang & Reed Wine Company



Quick Quotes


Wine & Spirits Magazine

“I would nominate both Lang & Reed bottlings for the top of the Cabernet Franc list, not just for their distinctive style and quality but also for the attitude behind them!”
Rod Smith ~ Wine & Spirits Magazine ~ June 2001


Decanter Magazine

“Cabernet Franc. On its own. Ten years ago, John and Tracey Skupny started a Cab Franc-only brand, Lang & Reed, trusting that wines made from a grape usually used for blending in Napa would find a following. Indeed it did, and when I taste the Skupny’s Cabernet Franc, I’m reminded how good the varietal can be solo. Both bottlings have a fresh-tasting cherry, raspberry and blueberry fruit, with leafy herb notes and crisp acidity; Etage has more power and tannin, yet remains a gentle, food-friendly drink.” Linda Murphy Linda Murphy ~ Decanter ~ December 2006

“Ok, I might be predisposed to like this wine because the owner / winemaker, John Skupny, was the first person to bring me into the wine world. But his [Lang & Reed] brand is pretty much universally acknowledged to be California’s best Cabernet Franc." Written by Doug Frost mw ms, Special to the Star, October 4, 2006

Lang & Reed
2008 Two-Fourteen
Napa Valley

“This winery has long specialized in Cabernet Franc and their 2008 Two-Fourteen is one of their best. Delicious notes of blue fruits, spring flowers and spice box soar from the glass of this medium-bodied, fleshy, quintessentially elegant and complex Cabernet Franc. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.”
