84pointsShady Lane 2016 Estate Franc 'n' Franc Red (Leelanau Peninsula)

A blend of 43% Cabernet Franc and 43% Blaufränkish make up this blend, joined by 14% Merlot. A quiet nose offers pipe tobacco, cedar, caramel and anise, with whispers of pomegranate. The palate is oak driven with only a fleeting note of blackberry, and is full of dusty tannins and flavors of cigar box and baking spice. Fiona Adams
