Corte Riva Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2005, 750mL (WA92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Corte Riva Cabernet Franc Napa Valley

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA92
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `A blend of fruit from Sonoma (79% ) and Napa (21%), the deep ruby/purple-hued 2005 Cabernet Franc exhibits glorious notes of chocolate, menthol, cedar, incense, black cherries, and mulberries. Surprisingly dense, yet light on its feet, it possesses medium body, silky tannin, and tremendous fragrance as well as personality. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Pride Mountain Vineyard`s well-known viticulturist, Romel Rivera, produces impressive wines under his own label, Corte Riva. Working closely with winemaker Bob Foley has been to his benefit, and Foley`s winemaking philosophy is apparent in these brilliant reds. Previously recommended: 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (89+), 2004 Merlot (91), 2004 Petite Sirah (94). Tel. (707) 573-1801; Fax (707) 573-8800` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
