Tantara 2013 Cabernet Franc (Santa Ynez Valley)

Oak plays a major role in this bottling from the owners' Mateo Vineyard, somewhat masking the variety's characteristically peppery hints, but it's lavish and delicious. Blueberry, blackcurrant, cocoa and warm pastry notes hit the nose, and the extremely smooth palate unleashes blackberry pie, dark-chocolate fudge and cappuccino flavors, without being sweet.
