Franciscan Oakville Estate Winemaker's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) It shows deep garnet color. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, cocoa, clove, plum, tobacco and toasted oak, with delicate notes of coffee and truffle. Rich and full on the palate with a supple mouthfeel and opulent layers of plum, cherry, anise, and mocha. A classic Napa Cab.
