2014 Cabernet Franc

100% Cabernet Franc
Napa Valley

Tasting Notes :

Inspired by the famous wines of the Loire Valley and the Bordeaux region of France, winemaker Barry Singer is passionate about working with Cabernet Franc from Napa Valley. His latest offering from Singer Cellars is made with fruit grown in the southern end of the valley.

Rich and lively, the wine immediately opens up with heady aromas of fresh red fruits, wild sage, and roasted hazelnuts. On the palate, the flavors are bursting at the seams with vibrant notes of ripe plum, cherry, wild berries, cinnamon, and savory spices. This profile is further complimented by a unique combination of natural richness, bright acidity, silky texture, and a lingering finish. Power, finesse, and satisfaction in every sip!

For food pairings, try this full-bodied wine with medium cheeses, stuffed mushrooms, grilled vegetables, baked potatoes with bacon, wild rice salads with dried berries, gourmet sandwiches, roasted chicken with fresh herbs, and beef bourguignon.

Score: 92 points / “Sommelier to the Stars” Christopher Sawyer
