Kenefick Ranch Napa Valley 2007 Cabernet Franc, $25.99-$51.99, 91+ points, poured opaque ruby trending deep crush black currant red with a broad clear rim.
Aromatic flowers with warm earth notes and the barest hint of bell pepper were delightful.
Medium-plus body was juicy without being over the top, not "hollow or flabby", but balanced with good acidity, mild-plus tannin, black currant, boysenberry, eucalyptus, and orange blossoms.
Finished With some power from loads of black pepper and some heat (15.2% alcohol).
Right now, this is the best Cabernet Franc I've had in my short history of wine tasting!
