Peter Franus Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 2738


Our 2013 Cabernet greets you with its youthful dark ruby color. Its complex aromas suggest cassis, roasted coffee, vanilla, and subtle notes of dried herb-basil and thyme. Flavors of plum and wild berry are broad and expansive, reined in by appropriate acidity and structure. Tannins are ripe and seamless. This harmonious wine is poised for longevity and exemplifies what great vineyard sites are all about-balance happens long before the grapes even arrive at the winery. Final note: Pure, lively, intriguing and delicious!

VinousThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. A host of graphite, grilled herbs, licorice and spice meld into a core of inky fruit in a rich, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon that is going to take at least a few years to fully come together. This is an unusually big, opulent wine from Peter Franus, but all the elements are in the right place.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a delicious, soft, round Cabernet Sauvignon, with notes of cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake and red and blackcurrants, this medium-bodied, elegant wine is meant to be drunk in its early years, yet has the balance to last for up to a decade.
