Jennifer says this cab is a rich blackberry with a touch of cassis and an herbal essence that only a good cab franc can produce. There’s a sweet, woodsy presence, thanks to 30 months in French oak barrels. It’s soft to the palate with a nice finish that flirts with your tongue.
Thaddeus says this has a nose of sweet plum with black currant bursting in. On the palate is a blackberry/dark cherry fruit. It’s very complex and approachable at this point and ready to drink.
This wine was produced in Yountville, Calif., and is a cabernet sauvignon with a blend of cabernet franc and merlot.
