Tasting Notes

92 points Wine Spectator: "There's a lushness to the bright currant, plum and black cherry flavors, with delicate spice, tobacco, sassafras, cedar and herb notes. The detailed flavors sail through the finish. Drink now through 2014. 296 cases made." (11/08) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright red. Aromas of blueberry, fresh herbs and sassafras lifted by a floral topnote. Juicy, spicy and brisk, with noteworthy complexity to its restrained berry and spice flavors. Juicy and light on its feet, finishing with firm tannins and very good length and lift." (May/June '09) Detert's Oakville Cabernet Franc is everything you'd expet from this varietal with a Napa Valley twist. The nose is full of black cherry, mocha, clay and herbal sage notes, which echo on the palate with a dusting of nicoise olive flavor. Firm, ripe and spicy, this wine is drinking now with some air and should evolve nicely over the next decade.
