Winemaker Notes

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.

Tasting Panel

These grapes are sourced from the finest real estate in Napa Valley: The Oakville, Rutherford, and Oak Knoll District AVAs make up this blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot (the remainder is Petit Verdot and Malbec). The expressive nose illuminates scented attributes of black plum, licorice, and blue flowers. Tight tannins grip the palate, but there’s a juicy underbelly of dark chocolate and black cherry with acidity in all the right places.

JS 92
James Suckling
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.

Franciscan Estate Winery Video
Franciscan is one of Napa Valley's most venerable wineries, reaching back more than three decades. Franciscan wines take their signature style - rich, vibrant flavors framed by supple tannins - from the ideal climate offered by Napa Valley's cool, southern half and from the time-honored tradition of small-lot winemaking, blending from hundreds of barrels to craft fine wines that fully express the classic Bordeaux varieties.

Franciscan was founded in 1972 by a group of lawyers and doctors from San Francisco who decided to try turning their passion for wine into a business. In 1985, Agustin Huneeus, a Chilean exile who had built Concha y Toro in his native country, took over the helm at Franciscan. Huneeus refocused the winery on using the superlative grapes growing in its own vineyards, rather than sourcing from outside.

Today, Franciscan's wines are crafted under the exacting eye of Janet Myers, who came to Franciscan in August 2003 as associate winemaker after working in the Margaret River region and Beaulieu Vineyard, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and Louis Martini. The winery remains committed to its tradition of small-lot winemaking, with small batches averaging just 150 to 1,500 cases. The image of a hand-operated wine press on Franciscan's logo and wine labels reflects this small lot approach to winemaking.
