Top 10 wines in the US press

Franciscan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Franciscan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011In the Detroit News, Sandra Silfven wrote that you should, “save this one for the serious wine enthusiasts at the holiday table. They’ll probably ask you for ‘more wine please,’ less turkey or less whatever you are serving.”

She added: “It’s a beauty, so intense, so packed with fruit, so lush. It oozes with French oak spice and toast that are seamlessly woven into the fruit. The fruit is lush blackberry, black currant, cherry, blackberry, ripe plum. It was aged 20 months in oak. It is blended with splashes of Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. Such a beauty for such a cool price. You won’t find many Napa Cabs under $30.”

    very much in the style that won the 1976 paris judgement? Pick up a book every once and awhile and learn that the block of grapes and the winemaker do not belong to ch. montelena and have not since 1976!!!
