2010 Franciscan Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2010 vintage Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Franciscan Estate is comprised of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Syrah and 1% Malbec.  Lively aromas of plum, cherry pipe tobacco and rustic herbs present immediately in the glass.  With some air time the fragrances become even more lovely and inviting.  Plum and cherry follow through on the palate with some coffee bean and toasty oak.  The finish is very silky and lingers for many moments on the mouth.  Great value and lovely taste!
