Bevan Showket Vineyard Red 2007
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The nose is dominated by the Cabernet Franc's expressive combination of violets, black berry and spice. Then the palate gives way to the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The initial impression is about how rich and powerful the wine is, and then it builds in waves. This wine is very persistent, and continues to gain weight as the long finish takes over and shows the depth of the blends individual components with nuances of cocoa, cassis and rich tobacco.
