Di Stefano 2003 Sogno Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is 96% Cabernet Franc, and why the winery doesn't just call a spade a spade is beyond me. But that quibble aside, there is much to recommend here. The fruit is plenty ripe and tastes of strawberry, raspberry and cherry preserves. The oak flavors bring on the smoke and toast, and the natural tendency of Cab Franc to impart green coffee bean notes is also much in evidence. The tannins have been softened up, but still leave a lingering green tea impression in the back of the throat. Paul Gregutt
