Sierra Foothills Cabernet Franc

I have reviewed wines from Mt Vernon Winery before and now it's time for their Cabernet Franc. We opened the Mt Vernon Winery 2003 Placer County Cabernet Franc tonight (this was my first time tasting this variety from this winery). Met with restrained, dark cherries and plum on the nose I expected a conventional California Cabernet Franc and I was not let down on the palate. With dark berries, oak and firm tannins that lingured in the mouth this a pleasing good quality Cabernet Franc. Nothing exceptional or suprising, just solid and good.
At $23 @ www.mtvernonwinery.com it is well worth a try.
