Peter Franus Napa Valley Red Wine 2014


SKU 07437


Dark ruby and youthful in color, the nose offers black cherry, dried herb, and ripe plum with a background of sweet oak weaving it all together. The mouth captures our stylistic hallmarks-structure, liveliness, and balance. The wine is integrated and harmonious, finishing with an appropriate amount of grip. It is poised for graceful aging.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Proprietary Red blend is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Easily the richest of the three cuvées, but not showing a lot of nuance or complexity, the wine has a dark ruby/plum color, attractive fruit on the attack, medium body, and some spice and earth in the finish. Drink it over the next decade.
