Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Franciscan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
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 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.
Vivid garnet in color with perfumed and inviting aromas of rich dark cherry, plum,chocolate, and layered undertones of vanilla, clove, black pepper, and sage. A well-balanced expression of fruit and oak elements fills the palate with cassis, bright cherry, dark berry, toast, cedar, and a hint of vanilla. Round but structured, with well-knit tannins that impart texture and length on the finish.
