POWERFUL RICH REDS

Bordeaux-style reds - CABERNET SAUVIGNON, Peter Franus. Napa Valley

2013 PETER FRANUS. Napa Valley, California

Alcohol Percentage: 15%
Area: From their website:
"My sources for Cabernet Sauvignon are two outstanding organic vineyards, one on Howell Mountain and the other in St. Helena. For our Merlot and Cabernet Franc we head south to Carneros. The cool region beautifully elevates the personality of each of those varieties. When Merlot is “correct,” it offers one of the most pure and satisfying wine drinking experiences. No wonder it has crept up as a higher percentage of the blend."
Grape Variety: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Producer: Peter Franus was winemaker at Mount Veeder Winery from 1981 to 1992 since when he has produced wines under his own label. Unusually for Napa Valley, he produces elegant, under-stated styles at 'relatively' sensible prices
Old Bridge Rating: Despite the high-ish alcohol, this is modern, sleek, well-balanced California Cabernet
Press Reviews: "A red with beautiful depth and texture showing a velvety mouthfeel and ripe yet reserved fruit. Full-bodied, flavorful and beautiful. Bordeaux blend. Drink or hold." - James Suckling, "The Top 100 Reds of Napa Valley 2016.'
