Provenance Vineyards – Cabernet Franc 2014 – Calistoga, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, racy, well-built and offers a small power. It reveals notes of cassis, ripe / juicy black berries and touches of fleshy / juicy red fruits associated with small touches of Zan, flowers as well as slight / discreet touches of spices, nutmeg and an imperceptible hint of cinnamon. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, suave and offers a good definition, tension, a slight gourmandise as well as a slight freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of raspberry associated with small / slight touches of blue fruits, violet / flowers as well as slight / discreet hints of pepper, salinity and very discreet hints of dark chocolate. Tannins are fine and very slightly dry. Good length.
