2017 Cabernet FRANCis, Family Collection, Knights Valley
In typical Cabernet Francis fashion, the 2017 rendition opens with lovely aromatics of rich plum, blackberry, savory herbs, and toasty oak. The incredibly opulent palate is overflowing with ripe fruit. Flavors of plum, elderberry, and blackberry kicks things off, then confectionary spices of vanilla and graham chime in. Everything is carried by ripe tannins and a seamless texture and finishes with pronounced minerality.
