Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
- US-Napa Valley
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- JS92, WE90
Deep garnet color. Blackberry and dark cherry with hints of peppercorn, fresh tobacco leaf, dark chocolate, and musk. Rich, full, and textured. Cassis and dark berry with a hint of anise. Dried herbs add to the complexity as the finish lingers with firm, yet finely knit, tannins. - Winemaker's Notes
A linear and tight 2015 with aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, berries, spices, and cedar, which remain ever so fine and polished. A lovely, bright and succulent finish. Beautiful to drink now but will improve with age. - JS92
This is a finely made wine, blended with 10% Merlot and smaller bits of Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers silky tannins and lovely notes of dried herb, sage, black cherry and blackberry. The finish is dusted in cocoa powder. - WE90
For over 40 years, Franciscan winemakers have sourced our remarkable grapes from some of the best vineyards in California, crafting lots slowly and carefully for fuller body with unmistakable character. We chase a perfection we think every glass of Franciscan deserves, and we will continue to do so in each batch and bottle to come.
We make two different collections of wines. The first, our Exclusive Wine Collection is made in small lots, showcasing the specific beauty and terroir of the famed Napa Valley, and is available only from the winery directly. The second, our Favorite Wine Collection, reveals the beautiful expressions of both Napa and Monterey appellations. But no matter which you choose, you’re in for a treat. All of our wines are made with the utmost care and attention to detail.
