93pointsFoxen 7200 2017 Tinaquaic Vineyard Old Vines Dry Farmed Cabernet Franc (Santa Maria Valley)

These dry-farmed old vines lend considerable character to the resulting wine. In this case, that means aroma of roasted plum, berries, dark slate, crumbled purple flowers and a hint of toasty sandalwood on the nose. The palate is tense, dense and yet remain fresh with acid, with a cracked peppercorn kick atop the blackberry core. Matt Kettmann
