Franciscan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, Napa Valley, CA - $21.99

This California Cab Sauv is actually a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Syrah, and 1% Petit Verdot. It was rated 94 points Wine Enthusiast, and past vintages have been rated in the high 80s and low 90s. It retails for $21.99/bottle at Whole Foods, where I attended a tasting.

Taste - black fruit, dark chocolate, a little spice, strong tannins

Another very nice vintage of this wine! Actually last summer in CA, all of the wineries we visited were raving about the 2007 Napa Valley red wines. Looking forward to trying more!
