FRANCISCAN ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON | 750 ML
Founded in 1973, Franciscan has a long tradition of crafting Cabernet Sauvignon with a highly meticulous approach. This is a tradition I am proud to continue today. We source our grapes from Napa Valley's renowned Oakville, Rutherford, and Oak Knoll District AVAs. Only the finest lots showcasing richness, body, and character are included in each bottle of Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon. Staying true to our roots, we vinify each vineyard block separately to bring out the best expression of each lot. The lots are aged in small French oak barrels for 20 months to concentrate flavors and add a kiss of toasty vanillin flavor. After aging, we blend together the best of the lots, along with other classic Bordeaux varieties, to create a wine of great character and complexity with layers of intense, rich, dark fruit flavors.
Blackberry and dark cherry with hints of peppercorn, fresh tobacco leaf, dark chocolate, and musk. Rich, full, and textured. Cassis and dark berry with a hint of anise. Dried herbs add to the complexity as the finish lingers with firm, yet finely knit, tannins.
