The Franciscan Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon showcases Franciscan's Oakville roots and a devotion to estate vineyard fruit and this venerable appellation. They have been producing cabernet sauvignon from their Oakville Estate since 1975. This bottling is an opportunity to craft a very limited, hand-selected blend from small lots of cabernet sauvignon showing textbook Oakville structure and body. A nice portion of Malbec adds deep color, plushy mouthfeel, and bright berry fruit notes. Combined, you'll find aromas of red plum, anise, cherry, violets and tobacco accentuated by notes of black currant, dried herbs, toasted oak and cocoa. The combination of flavors and textures creates a powerful yet elegant wine.
