Stryker Sonoma Cabernet Franc Russian River Valley Alegría Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine with a personality that might be described as lively, elegant, and intriguingly complex. The wine displays inviting aromas of nutmeg, caramelized cedar and exotic herbs that meld seamlessly into flavors 0f bittersweet chocolate, espresso bean, and brambleberry. Hefty tannins on the back end echo the preceding dark fruit and spice flavors and encourage another sip of this good- natured wine. A versatile food wine, our 2005 cab franc is the perfect companion to robust soups, risotto with dried mushrooms, or any veal dish a la Milanese, Marsala or Parmigiana.
