2018 Hagafen Cabernet Franc
The "Bad Boy of Napa Valley" is here! While other feel Cabernet Franc is only good for blending, we emphatically disagree! This wine is a unique and beautiful expression by itself and is too good to always be lost in a blend.
Starting with rich focused nose of black currant, huckleberry, black pepper and a hint of violet, you can see why this wine is a stand alone. Those same flavors flow onto the palate and are joined by blackberry bramble and a bit of baking spice. This wine is full of big juicy tannins and has great structure. This Cab Franc is beautiful now, as a bright younger wine, and also has wonderful aging potential!
