Lucas & Lewellen 2016 Valley View Vineyard Cabernet Franc (Santa Ynez Valley)

The 20% new French oak used in this bottling shows strongly on the nose, with roasted wood aromas overcoming the dark-red-cherry and light pepper scents. The palate is wrapped in firm oaky tannins, so more time will be needed to allow the smashed cherry and berry flavors to integrate with the vanilla elements. Matt Kettmann
