Rating: **** 2003 Lucas & Lewellen Cote Del Sol Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Barbara, CA

Review: This is Lucas & Lewellen's reserve-level cabernet, with grapes selected from limited lots on their Valley View Vineyard. The color of the wine is medium dark red in the glass. Aromas are an alluring combination of pinot noir plus chocolate plus classic cabernet sauvignon. On the palate, you first notice a yummy, rich middle - it's almost like chocolate milk. The pleasant, plush finish lingers. A real delight.

This wine was sampled as part of our brief expedition cruising Santa Ynez Valley.
