Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Franc Wetzel Family Estate 750ML 2012    
Sku: 52144

Tasting notes
Deep ruby red with a youthful purple hue. Initially, there is a lifted cedary, toasty character, which is followed by a core of fruits. These include abundant blueberries, boysenberries and dark plums. Slight hints of varietal earthiness and black olives provide additional complexity to this already intensely aromatic wine. A medium bodied wine, with a lovely rich texture of cherries, chocolate and mocha flavor. Complimenting the above is an integrated oak treatment providing nuances of toast, vanillin and nutmeg. The finish is appealingly long and elegant with approachable tannins.
