2018 Lucas & Lewellen Estate Cabernet Franc
Red Wine from Santa Barbara, United States
This Cabernet Franc is a very old variety which is still dominant in parts of the Loire Valley and Bordeaux. Warm summer temperatures allowed these grapes to fully ripen, giving this wine color, body, flavor and aroma. This Cabernet Franc is a beautiful deep ruby color and slightly oaky. It exhibits themes of warm earth, dark chocolate, and sage followed by ripe, chewy tannins and a long rich, finish.

Winemaker: Lucas & Lewellen
In 1975 a friendship became a life-long partnership, converging on the belief in the quality of Santa Barbara. Over the next 30 years Lucas & Lewellen would acquire over 400 acres of vineyards, aiming to stay true to the region’s cool climate style. The fruit has an unusually long "hang time" on the vine, allowing it to fully develop and produce wines of distinctive character.
