Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
from Napa Valley, California
Number 37 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
"Exemplifies its terroir and vintage with its impeccable balance, and the way the ripe, sophisticated tannins wrap around the fleshy black currant, olive, chocolate and herb flavors. Finishes with some sweetness from charry oak."
This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of Napa Valley's Oakville Region. Loaded with rich, ripe black cherry and plum flavors that are nicely balanced with hints of sweet toasted oak. Small percentages of Cabernet Franc and Merlot are added to enhance the wines depth and complexity.

I've been looking for a wine that was as good -- or better -- than a memoriable one I had 10 years ago. This is it. I bought several bottles initially -- then I bought a case. YUM!

Best wine I've had in years. Smooth and great taste. Highly recommended, good price too.

I tasted the 2003 cab last night. Wow! One of the best I have tasted in the past ten years. Instantly, I found myself wishing I had saved it for Christmas. This wine is greatly under-priced.
