Wine Notes:  Web: Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon is a quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet. The 2001 vintage was marked by a roller coaster of weather changes, including frost in the early part of the growing season followed by cool and hot periods. Despite the unusual weather pattern, the end of the season provided the ideal combination of cool evenings and warm to cool days. This allowed for slow, even ripening that lets tannins, sugars and flavors to develop in unison. The result of this long hang time is a wine with supple tannins, complexity, intense flavors and overall balance.
