Tasting Note: This is the second release of The Prior, and it is a beauty. This sensual wine shows some classic aspects of Cabernet Franc: exotic spice, pungent aromatics and tons of palate volume, along with less often encountered traits: great color, deep richness, suave tannins, layered complexity, beguiling charm and sweet fruit. Not just the “other” Cabernet, this has its own delicious character that can’t be ignored. No doubt the great vineyard sources that make up this wine – Stagecoach, Frediani and Kenefick Vineyards – help to give depth.
