Monthly Wine Pick: Franciscan Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

wineIt’s wine Wednesday! It seems that fall has finally arrived in Austin just in time for our our wine pick of the month. This month I chose a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Franciscan Napa Valley Estate to share with you all.  I was delighted to find this bottle of wine as it is a perfect balance between smooth and savory, and pairs nicely with a steak or roast.

The winery had this to say about this rich and fruity wine:

“Deep garnet with a lovely plum nose and rich fruit with layers of complexity. Hints of licorice, vanilla, blackberry, tobacco, and leather envelop the fruit. Ripe entry of cherries and cassis showcases a full, well-structured palate. Textured and rich, the mouth-feel is balanced and generous showing layers of ripe berries, black pepper, mocha, and spice. A very long finish that leads you to another sip.”

At $29.00 a bottle, this wine is favorably priced and is an excellent wine to enjoy on a cool fall evening. You can purchase this wine from the winery here, or use their online retail locator to find a bottle at a store near you.

Life is better with good food, good wine and great design,
