Conn Creek Cabernet Franc Napa Valley Limited Release 2009

Member Review by lizzy3195:

I tasted this at the winery in Napa and fell in love with it's smoothness. My first Cab. Franc, so I don't quite know what to compare it too. There seemed to be only subtle acidity and such a light finish that I think it would pair well with just about any protein.

Opened in 2006, unleashing powerfully smooth vanilla covered cherries. Lingering finish that dances on the palate that salivates in anticipation for another taste. Out of the gate it was delicious, however a hour in the air gave it the complexity and bouquet only attainable by exhaustive wine crafting nurturing. A treasure!

The nose begins with rich, dark fruit and subtle hints of chocolate and toasted oak. Dark, luscious cherry and plum flavors come alive on the palate and meld with notes of spice, chocolate and licorice. The finish is rich and rewarding.
