Franciscan Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007

I was really hopeful when picking out this bottle because the tag at the store stated it was a “Wine Advocate 94 rated” wine.  Purchased for a birthday dinner, I was attempting to get a nice wine we had never tried.  This wine does not drink like any 94 rated wine I have had before. Beginning with earthy aromas of mushrooms and tobacco, what this Cabernet lacks in body, it does not make up for in it’s rough finish.  Decanting will soften this wine a bit but not enough to purchase again.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this wine.

Retails for $25 – $30.
