($52; blended with 25% merlot) Good medium ruby. Floral aromas of black cherry, violet, dark chocolate, minerals and tar. Sweet and soft on entry, then flavorful in the middle palate, with moderate texture and weight. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins, good length and an exotic suggestion of pineapple.

I'm a huge fan of Pride wines, and this Cab Franc does not disappoint. Great deep ruby with a rich nose of licorice and black berry accents. It's big and mouth-filling with nicely melded dark berry flavors with great Cab Franc character.
