Vintages Wine Panel: Here’s a quintessential Napa Valley Cab. The region’s characteristic warm days and cool evenings ensure even-ripening of the grapes, which, in this case, results in a wine with intense cassis, vanilla and plum tones. Supple tannins come in on the mid-palate to bring balance to the wine. A touch of Merlot and a smidge of Petit Verdot are used to fill out this fine, beef-friendly wine. It will also reward 2-4 years in a cellar. My note: A dependable producer of classic and well-balanced Napa Cabernet. Mocha and dark chocolate on the nose followed by blackberry and cassis.

Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Franciscan consistently produces great Cabernets that are a staple in many restaurants in America. This vintage has a nose of cherries, blackberries and tobacco. It tastes of cherry, dark chocolate, and plum with supple tannins. This wine is balanced and easy to drink. It is a really nice Cabernet that you can easily find for under $30.
