It’s winter time and chillier weather – that means one thing…CABERNET!
There’s nothing like a steak dinner with your sweetheart on a Saturday night, a roaring, crackling fire in the fireplace, two empty glasses and a bottle of Franciscan Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Franciscan Napa Valley Cabernet is a flagship wine for Franciscan. They are one of many historic wineries that represent the heart and soul of Napa Valley in their Cabs. This 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet runs about $28.00 per bottle and is quite the value wine!
The 2010 Cabernet is a deep red with purple hues in the glass. Wafting notes of dark blackberries; currants and cassis hit your nose as you swirl….lending slight woody undertones in the background. One sip and you immediately taste dark berries and oak with very slight vanilla notes. A little spice mid palate with structured tannins and lengthy finish. A fantastic wine after it opens up for couple hours. (decanting definitely needed on younger Cabs)
The Franciscan Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 earns a FOUR BOTTLE Rating. This is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet with value price. Franciscan knows Napa Valley and and they know how to make top notch wines. This winter, curl up with your sweetie, get a blanket and a nice glass of Franciscan Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010. Bring in the winter chill with class ~ You won’t be disappointed and your sweetie won’t be either!
