Peter Franus Napa Valley Red Wine 2007
74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc. Our 2007 Red is dark ruby in color, nearly opaque. Still very youthful the wine delivers classic aromas of cassis, blackberry, bay, and hint of green olive.
Secondary aromas include floral notes: rose petal and lavender and dried herb, sage, and thyme. Sweet toasty oak completes the package. The flavors reflect the nose, and are deep, rich and expansive. Nevertheless, the structure is firm and angular enough to sustain the wine for a decade or more.
