I was excited to try the '08 Franciscan Merlot from Napa. This puppy had four good characteristics/indicators going for it: Napa Valley, Franciscan's great track record with merlot, a price way south of Franciscan's usual $20 vicinity and some bottle age--being a 2008. So much for good indicators. I found this wine more reserved than earlier vintages of Franciscan merlot which I've enjoyed. The hallmark black cherry flavors were wimpy compared to the usually intense and pleasant Franciscan fruit bomb. And intense tastes of layered, nuanced and well integrated spice, that are usually present in a Franciscan merlot were, instead, disappointingly light and feminine. If you like an old world experience with a light touch this one may be for you---but it's not for me. Although I didn't pour this one down the sink, I won't be buying another either.
