Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 2006, Napa Valley, CA - $20



Received this bottle of wine as a thank you gift, but found it online for $20/bottle. Past vintages have been rated as high as 98 by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and 95 by Wine Spectator. It is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc/Petite Verdot/Malbec.

Aroma - dark cocoa
Taste - dark cocoa, moderate to strong tannins, very very dry

Wow, this is like drinking 80% dark chocolate. Perfect for a winter night!
