Asuka Cabernet Franc - 2009(PARTNER)
Drinking this wine is a special treat! Made and grown by the best and meant to be consumed for the best moments in life...everday! Its such a rarity to find such ripe plush Cab Franc with well integrated fine grain tannins, hints of smoke and wine pepper with vervy acidity. A bit young now, but enjoyable!
Heidi Barrett and Kenzo Estate do it again! Delicious wine, lives up to $100 price tag. Wonderfully restrained as compared to a cabernet sauvignon- but velvety and luscious as expected from Napa. Perfect Sunday afternoon sipper in good company.
