Detert Family Vineyards, Cabernet Franc 2007, Oakville, Napa Valley, California
Tasting Note: An unusually, tannin-forward cabernet franc that delivers ripe California fruit.
Ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of blossom, raspberry, strawberry and red cherry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-to-full-bodied cabernet franc delivers concentrated red fruit that is more ripe and California in style than old world.
You can feel the alcohol on the attack followed by mid-palate complexity underpinned by medium-plus tannin.
Bottle Note: Paying tribute to over fifty years of family winegrowing, we craft small production wines that showcase our unique Oakville vineyard.
