Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Napa Valley, California, United StatesThe Franciscan wines have always been good value, and now they come with some polish too, shedding the big fat Napa image for something a little fresher and more savoury that draws you into the wine. It’s a touch rustic with meaty, black olive, cassis and tobacco notes but all in all, it delivers for the price and its Napa Valley moniker. Serve this with grilled meat to round off the lightly grippy tannins yet to be shed. A beautiful vintage and one that will repay with extended cellaring.Tasted: 25 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 29.95 LCBO - Vintages Producer: Franciscan EstateDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
