Franciscan Estate was founded over thirty years ago by Augustin Heneeus. Located in the heart of Napa Valley the estate owns over 200 acres of vines right in the Oakville AVA. It’s no wonder their wines are consistently fine and often outstanding. This 2011 is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Petite Verdot, 1% Syrah, and 1% Cabernet Franc slowly macerated over 22 days and aged 20 months in oak barrels. It shows deep garnet color. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, cocoa, clove, plum, tobacco and toasted oak, with delicate notes of coffee and truffle. Rich and full on the palate with a supple mouthfeel and opulent layers of plum, cherry, anise, and mocha. A classic Napa Cab.
The Bruniers pull this wine from old vines planted in the complex soils of La Crau, where the layers of alluvial soil, limestone, silica and red clay are all topped with large, smooth galets. In 2011, the wine radiates life, the scent alone invigorating in its vibrancy. It smells like a vineyard, earthy, herbal, sunny and warm; the flavors follow in the same vein, lush yet restrained in its focused, complexly spiced, wild cherry taste. It’s not at all heavy, but it’s a powerful wine, able to communicate the complexity of the site in a single sip.
