Pride Mountain Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Low crop levels in the 2003 vintage were disappointing, but served to intensify the already delightful character of our Cabernet Franc. Blended with 25% Merlot, this remarkable wine is virtually opaque in its deep ruby hue. Aromas and flavors of boysenberry, red currant and fresh sage gush from its rich and explosive mid-palate, followed by ripe blueberry, espresso and deep chocolate flavors in the finish.
