About This Wine:
Ripe fruit makes 2007 SMITH WOOTON CABERNET FRANC big and bold with clear varietal character. Extended barrel aging enhances the tannin structure and adds to the wine’s aging potential.

Dried flowers and ripe, black fruits open the nose and continue on the palate of this decadent 2007 Smith Wooton Napa Cabernet Franc. Pomegranite and blackberry preserves stand out on the palate with a voluptuous mouth feel and young, savory tannins. This wine has a gluttoness intensity that cannot be denied and yet has balance that will lend it for many years to come.

Enjoy this with roast duck and plum sauce, grilled portabellas, pungent blue cheese, and chocolate.
