Darioush, Signature Series Cabernet Franc 2016 750ML
Napa Valley, California Cabernet Franc blend of 75% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot
Winery tasting Notes: From a textbook vintage, weather-wise, 2016 Signature Cabernet Franc shows its predominantly mountainside origins, opening with savory and lingering aromas of crushed boysenberries, blueberries and Kirsch accented by earthen notes of dry loam, lead pencil shavings, and cigar box. Steeped black tea, anise and underbrush create for a savory interplay on the taut, medium to full-bodied palate packed with black and blue fruits. Each sip is framed by firm, finely-grained tannins – a lively backbone to support its great length, depth, and age-worthiness.
