Rating: **+ 2003 Presidio Interlude, Napa CA

Review: This is a bordeaux-style blend of Rutherford Bench cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc vinted by Presidio of Santa Barbara. It is a dark magenta in the glass, and offers luscious deep aromas of cabernet grape and oak. The palate is a different story, though, coming across bright and red like a stop light. A bit of a surprise there, and it may need some additional years to soften.

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