2013 Relic Wines The Prior Cabernet Franc
Loved the 2014 at the barrel tasting earlier this year. Dark ruby with a dark purplish core. Nose started off a little stinky with some cheese but then opened up with some dark fruits, black berries, baking spices, savory notes and woody undertones. Thick and extracted on the palate, coated with lovely dark fruits, especially black with some light dryness in the finish. Heavy tannins (8/10), full bodied and long finish. One of our favorite Napa Valley Cabernet Francs.
2016 till 2030.
