Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Region: Napa Valley, California

Ratings: James Suckling 90 points

Winemaker's Description:  Deep garnet with a lovely plum nose and rich fruit with layers of complexity. Hints of licorice, vanilla, blackberry, tobacco, and leather envelop the fruit. Ripe entry of cherries and cassis showcases a full, well-structured palate. Textured and rich, the mouthfeel is balanced and generous showing layers of ripe berries, black pepper, mocha, and spice. A very long finish that leads you to another sip.
