This is a very nice Cabernet Franc from the Napa Valley.  Purple in color with some ruby hues, opaque and bright.  The nose has black cherries, tobacco, black pepper and slight forest floor.  Full bodied.  Nice, lush texture.  On the palate, black cherries, spice and char, layered and deep.  Great balance.  Long finish.  Delicious.  This is one of the better California Cab Francs.  Still needs another five to ten years until full mature, it will drink great over the next twenty years.  Nice on its own, it will work better with food.  Standing Rib Roast would be a nice match.
