Our 2011 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Franc, Black Label opens with alluring aromatics displaying lifted red berry, lavender and sweet basil notes with a touch of dried herbs, tobacco leaf and barrel spice playfully effusing from the glass.

Beautifully balanced and supple, the palate is filled with bright flavors of red cherry and raspberry. Ripe tannins, round and plush flow through and grow with energy through a long and expansive palate with tobacco, herb and floral notes lingering on the finish.

A pretty wine with plenty of textural elegance and finesse, its vibrant character makes for early enjoyment, but the rich structure and natural acidity will allow this wine to evolve beautifully with age.
