Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2005

SKU C0180


Blueberry pie meets green tea aromas. Full bodied with vibrant acidity, lively texture and a mouthwatering mid-palate. Gentle fine tannins finish with subtle espresso. Will go with anything edible!

Wine AdvocateThe elegant, dark ruby/blue/purple-tinged 2005 Cabernet Franc reveals notions of crushed rocks, menthol, blueberries, raspberries, sweet cherries, and subtle smoke and earth in the background. It is a medium-bodied, elegant Cabernet Franc with serious flavor intensity. It should drink well for 8-10 years.

Wine SpectatorLoamy, earthy flavors are dry and chewy, but the dense berry, spicy oak and toast flavors at the core are simply young and rambunctious now. Decant. Best from 2008 through 2013.

Wine EnthusiastThere's a sharpness to this wine that edges out the cherry and raspberry flavors. Although it's dry and rich in oak, that sharp prickly feeling emphasizes the tannins, and takes away from total enjoyment.
