"Dense garnet hue. Powerful scents of black cherry, plum and cassis. Juicy flavors of raspberry and blackberry. Robust tannins and layers of red plum and espresso in the lingering close."
As a diplomat, I drank wine all around the world for my country. Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, dollar-for-doallar is one of the best wines I have ever tasted.
The Franciscan is a solid Cabernet. It isn't a cheap wine, but it always tastes good. A full-bodied, dense wine - it will always please. This is a must-have for your wine cellar.
This Cabernet is great for the money. Rich flavors of chocolate and cassis. It is big so pair it with some great big dinners this winter.
