Paradigm Cabernet Franc 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The Cabernet Franc is very dark purplish black in color. Aromas are blueberry jam, blackberry, vanilla and toast. At first it seems Cab-like across the flavor profile but changes mid-palate with lifted notes unique to Cab Franc. The wine is compressed with moderate dusty tannins, good acidity, and clean finish. Cab Franc fans will love this! Fully ripe Cabernet Franc with none of the apparent greenness that can turn up in this variety. Only black and red fruit characters here which is a credit to our vineyard manager, Fernando Diaz.
