Gallica’s Napa Cab Franc is ruby purple with blue-fuchsia glints. The wine has a perfume of violets and black plums, and the first palate impression is high-toned. Then the wine darkens into a sense of red and black bramble fruits accented by fennel seed and coriander. The tannins are modest, and a flare of acidity, especially mid-palate, segues to a finish like plums steeped in coffee. Truly a lovely wine.
