Rating: **+ 2004 Lucas & Lewellen Cabernet Franc, Santa Barbara County, CA

Review: I saw relatively few cab francs in the Santa Ynez Valley area. This one showed medium red in the glass with a hint of orange brick. Aromas were fruity, with a clean laundry overtone plus mashed fruit salad. On the palate, a distinctive acid and fruit attack hit the back of the mouth, followed by a fairly fast finish. Interesting, but no return engagement required.

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