Osprey's Dominion Vineyards 2002 Cabernet Franc

Ospreys dominion

Osprey’s Dominion 2002 Cabernet Franc ($22), which was aged for 12 months in small oak barrels, seems fuller bodied and more lush than the double gold medal winning 2001 edition, but the flavor profile is similar.

It features an aromatic berry-forward nose with ripe raspberries, baked cherries and hot cocoa aromas.

Soft and round on the palate, this low-tannin red has a little less structure than the ‘01, but is no less delicious, with flavors matching the aromas and just enough oak character. Super-subtle hints of Italian basil add a layer of complexity that makes this wine impossible to dislike.
