Thomas Fogarty 2005 Gist Ranch Estate Cabernet Franc (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Super-tannic. You can taste the astringency of the grapeskins in the sandpapery mouthfeel, and some of those tannins probably come from oak, too. Under all that, you'll find a rich vein of cherries, mainly red, with an infusion of red currants. Could age, although it doesn't seem likely.
