Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Franciscan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Founded in 1973, Franciscan has a long tradition of crafting Cabernet Sauvignon with a highly meticulous approach. 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 vanilla 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.
The wine opens with aromatic notes of black cherry and dark plum with appealing undertones of clove and vanilla. The velvet-smooth palate adds blackberry, dark fruit and chocolate characteristics, which blend with complex hints of cedar and toasted oak. Fine tannins impart texture and length on the finish. Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon alongside hearty, rich meats, like ribeye steak, roasted lamb, pork chops and grilled gourmet burgers.
