Byington 2013 Bates Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Franc (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Caramelized blueberry, crushed pepper and a deeply hidden dried green herb component present on the dense nose of this bottling, which hides the grapes typicity a tad yet remains delicious. The palate rides a nice line between smoked beef, chocolate and balsamic reduction and the expected peppery and herbal edges. Matt Kettmann
