Saint Felicien, Cabernet Franc 2007, nice just nice

Saint Felicien, Cabernet Franc 2007, By Bodega Catena Zapata, USD 15
A series sold  only to the local market. A CF blend from Agrelo district (lujan de Cuyo Dpt) and San Carlos (Uco Valley). A soft red mostly sweet,gentle and caramelized. Some red cherries and sweet
quince marmalade attractive but somehow weak in terms of lacking good acidity to back it up. Very mild oak envelope and a very soft wet leather bretty like. Likable and enjoyable though.
I wound´t go more than 85 points. All in all a good value. It dosen´t look like worth waiting more than now.
