    Another terrific example of Cabernet Franc in Napa, the delicious 2005 Cabernet Franc Robert's (90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) aged 18 months in 100% French oak, of which 50% was new. It has a dense ruby/purple color and loads of forest flora, in addition to mulberry, boysenberry, and a sort of wild mountain blue and red fruit. Complex, light on its feet, but intense in flavor, this at is soft, round and already delicious. I don't see the point of aging it any further, although I'm sure it will keep for another 5-8 years. Interestingly, the alcohol is 14.49%.

    Features aromas of loamy earth, dried herb, sage and dried currant. Medium- to full-bodied, fleshy in texture and narrow in its range of flavors. Drink now through 2014. 198 cases made.
