Snowden Melchior Kemper Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This sports some bright savory details amid its core of cassis and damson plum fruit, with a sparkle of tobacco leaf on the focused, loam-tinged finish. Best from 2022 through 2033. 350 cases made.
The 2018 Cabernet Franc Melchior Kemper Vineyard speaks in quiet, hushed tones. Dried flowers, mocha, spice, mint and rose petal are all nicely lifted. There is good aromatic presence and plenty of varietal character, but like the Merlot, it is a bit on the light side.
